Meet American Photographer and War Correspondent Margaret Bourke-White

This year’s theme for the Annual Women’s History Month Banquet hosted by the Council of Women’s Organization is “Working to Form a More Perfect Union: Honoring Women in Public Service and Government.”

The Council has selected Margaret Bourke-White to represent the many women who have served this Country at the Monday, March 14, 2016 banquet.

Clevelander Margaret Bourke-White published 11 books of photo essays, was the first woman accredited as a war correspondent (1942), flew with the Air Force on a bombing mission in 1943, traveled with General Patton’s Army through Germany in 1945, traveled to India twice and photographed Gandhi a few hours before he was assassinated in 1948. Come hear her amazing story as told through a first-person presentation, and find out what it was like on the front lines during the war.

The performance “Meet Margaret Bourke-White” is produced by Eden Valley Enterprises and researched and written by Shelley Pearsall. Bette Lou Higgins and Priscilla Kaczuk will be performing as Margaret Bourke-White.

A social hour kicks off the evening at 5:30 pm, and the dinner and program begins at 6:30 pm at the Zem Zem Shrine Club, West 38th St and Zuck Road. Tickets are $30/person and must be purchased by March 4th.
