Up Close: The War to End All Wars

Saturday, January 12, 2019
11 am – 3 pm

You create the content at this one-day pop-up exhibit! Bring your favorite WWI era artifact and join the conversation about how WWI impacted life in America.

Display your family antiques alongside artifacts from the Black Heritage Society of Washington State, Buffalo Soldiers Museum, and the Suquamish Museum.

At 1 pm, hear about the important contributions that black soldiers have made towards American history in a special presentation with Jackie Jones-Hook of the Buffalo Soldiers Museum, historian Stephen Corbett, and Christopher E. Johnson from the National Park Service.

At 2 pm, delve into the impact of WWI on American women through the lens of voluntary organizations with historian Karen Blair. From selling war bonds to driving ambulances in France, patriotic women embraced new roles and launched an era of unprecedented political, economic, and social opportunities for the New Woman of the post war period.
