Community Cinema: Makers, Season 2: Women In Space at the Seminole Heights Branch Library

Friday, October 24 at 2:00 p.m.
Seminole Heights Branch Library, 4711 Central Ave. in Tampa

Makers, Season 2 is a six-part series airing this fall on PBS / WEDU. This segment, Women in Space, traces the history of women pioneers in the U.S. space program. In the last half-century, women have fought their way into nearly every sphere of American life, from the battlefield to the comedy club, the soundstage to the Senate. Each documentary in this six-part series examines the impact of the women’s movement on six fields once largely closed to women: business, space, Hollywood, comedy, war and politics. In each field, women have pried open, and profoundly reshaped, the central institutions of American life and culture. Through intimate interviews with trailblazing women known and unknown, viewers are given a rare glimpse-- sometimes funny, sometimes sad, and always candid—of what it was like to be pioneers in their fields. A panel discussion will follow. This program is presented in partnership with WEDU PBS.

For adults and teens.
