Extending America’s Promise: Pioneering Women with Cokie Roberts

Event Date: 
July 19, 2018

This event is free and open to the public and presented in collaboration with the Missouri History Museum and the Society of the Sacred Heart and its celebration, Saint Rose Philippine Duchesne: 200 Years Crossing Frontiers.

As the new country of the United States was taking shape, women did much of the molding. Religious women in particular, like Rose Philippine Duchesne, who arrived in St. Charles, Missouri, from France in 1818, took on the task of extending America’s promise to all of its people – including women, Native Americans, African Americans, and the impoverished. Join journalist and author Cokie Roberts, alumna of Sacred Heart schools in New Orleans and Bethesda, Maryland, as she tells the delightful stories of these pioneering women whose work lives on today.
