Upcoming Events at the Museum of New Mexico

3/29/15, Sunday
2:00pm — 4:00pm
Sweet Georgia Brown, a film about African American women in World War II

In war and in peacetime, in theaters of conflict and on the homefront, American women have participated in our nation’s defense. Until recent years, those contributions have failed to attract much notice. Even less understood: the contributions of African American women, who had to fight just for the right to serve. On Sunday, March 29, at 2 pm in the History Museum auditorium, see the New Mexico premiere of Sweet Georgia Brown: Impact, Courage, Sacrifice and Will, a documentary by Lawrence E. Walker of PureHistory Films. A celebration of National Women’s History Month, the event will include remarks by Walker; Marilyn Dykman, a retired Coast Guard officer and the first female Hispanic aviator in Coast Guard history; and Lt. Col. Pam Gaston, representing Women Veterans of New Mexico, a nonprofit organization providing support services. The event is free with museum admission. Sundays are free to NM residents. Seating is limited. Make a reservation by calling (505) 476-5152.
