Buy Pass & Parking

On Wednesday, June 29 at 7:30 p.m., actress Sherrie Tolliver brings the character of ‘Rosie the Riveter’ to life at the Steele Memorial Bandstand as part of the Education Department’s World War II Theme week.

Rosie the Riveter is a cultural icon of World War II, representing the women who worked in factories and shipyards during the war. Join cultural history interpreter Sherrie Tolliver, from Women in History, for a discussion on how the recruitment of women for this noble cause forever changed women’s role in the workplace.

Come and hear the intriguing story of American women on the Home Front during World War II. Their willingness to embrace all hardship to promote the war effort was embodied by J. Howard Miller’s “I Can Do It” poster featuring the character that became known to history as Rosie the Riveter. Rosie’s iconic image reminds Americans of women’s social and economic awakening amid the worst conflict in human history.

Sherrie Tolliver portrays several historical women, and is based in North Carolina.

The event is finished.
