Women on the Mother Road in Arizona: Route 66 – Flagstaff

October 12, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Screening and Discussion of Oral Histories and Documentary Film

Called the “Mother Road” by author John Steinbeck, U.S. Route 66 stretches some 2,400 miles from Los Angeles to Chicago, symbolic of the mobility available to Americans, and an iconic highway for many travelers. Yet much of the historical perspective of the highway that passes through Arizona has primarily focused on men, often overlooking the experiences of women and girls. Please join us for a screening and conversation with project director Katrina Parks, historians Heidi Osselaer and Olivia Charest and archivist Sean Evans who will reexamine Route 66 from a female perspective.

Funding for this program is provided in part by a grant from Arizona Humanities and the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), with additional support from the Mohave Museum of History and the Arts. The event is free and open to the public. For more information, please contact Katrina Parks at katrinaparks@mac.com.
