At a time when racial tensions and women’s rights are at the forefront of social dialogue, biographer and historian Grant Hayter-Menzies spotlights the trailblazing attitudes of one of our nation’s former First Mothers. Lillian Carter: A Compassionate Life chronicles her work as a white nurse in segregated Georgia, a Peace Corps volunteer in 1960s India, and her innovative ideas about social justice, equality, and what it means to show compassion for others. Bring your mother, children, and friends to this special Mother’s Day program looking at Carter’s lasting legacy, and Hayter-Menzies will share the lessons that everyone can learn from her work.
