‘A War for Democracy?’: The Experience of African Americans and Women in World War I

Featuring: Dr. Jennifer Keene

We invite you to continue the celebration of the WWI exhibition opening during our Annual Rothschild Distinguished Speaker Series. This year’s lecturer, Jennifer D. Keene, is a specialist in the American military experience of WWI and published author of three books: Doughboys, the Great War and the Remaking of America; World War I: The American Soldier Experience; and The United States and the First World War. She is also the lead author for Visions of America: A History of the United States.

This series is made possible by a generous bequest from the late Norman S. Rothschild (1917- 1998) in memory of his parents Aleen and Irwin B. Rothschild. The fund allows the public the opportunity to attend and participate in programming, including lectures by nationally recognized speakers, beyond the normal scope of activities.
