Marjory Stoneman Douglas: The Woman Behind the Name

Event Date:

January 16 @ 10:00 am

Venue:

Coral Springs Museum of Art
2855A Coral Springs Drive
Coral Springs, FL 33065

Organizer:

Brittany Curtis
954-340-5007
bcurtis@coralsprings.org

Program Description:

Join seasoned Chautauqua performer Betty Jean Steinshouer for a special program about the woman for whom Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School is named. Most people know her only as one of the original advocates for Everglades National Park. That is true, but she was much more. She was a rabble-rouser, an outspoken campaigner against the prison work system, school segregation, and rampant development in South Florida, among other issues. This program will be presented in costume and character, with a discussion to follow, for all ages, a month before the one-year anniversary of the tragic school shooting at nearby Parkland. It will be a celebration of community activism and Florida history.
