The musical Hamilton introduced many in the modern world to the Schuyler sisters. But there are other fascinating women of the 18th century, and the stories of their labor, loves, and lives deserve an encore. Dr. Holly N.S. White will join the Lecture Bar's virtual podium to explore women like first lady Abigail Adams; Sally Hemmings, the enslaved mother of many of Thomas Jefferson's children; Theodosia Burr, the daughter of Aaron Burr (sir) and many others, shedding light on the plights of diverse and dynamic women of early America.
