A Look At Early Bronx Woman
What we now know as The Bronx in the 1600s was an unnamed wilderness. Courageous pioneers, men and woman, settled here in a time of uncertainty. In celebration of Women’s History Month, Toby Z. Liederman, women’s advocate and coordinator of Anne Hutchinson annual events, will provide a brief story of the women who settled here in the 17th and 18th centuries with their families. Guests are encouraged to share their own accounts about women in Bronx history. This free public lecture will be held at The Museum of Bronx History, located at 3266 Bainbridge Avenue, The Bronx, New York 10467. For directions, please call (718) 881- 8900
Feel free to share this with anyone, and if you can make it, it would be a pleasure to have you.
Thanks.
