On March 19 several WTB members and guests enjoyed a tour and a variety of exhibits at the Equal Rights Heritage Center in Auburn, NY. We immersed ourselves in the rich history of equal rights movements which are highlighted through interactive displays. The center afforded us the opportunity to learn, to explore in depth and even to transfer selected documents to our own computers. In addition we had a chance to simply visit and catch up with each other! Much gratitude goes to Courtney Rae Kasper for opening the center on a Sunday and for sharing her extensive knowledge of history.
President Jimmy Carter initiated Women’s History Week in 1980 and Congress expanded it to a month in 1987. To honor the illustrious women both past and present who have blazed a trail of change, a visit to this center is a perfect fit!
