Field Trip to the Charlotte Hawkins Brown Museum, Sedalia
With students from WGS 221: Introduction to Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies (taught by professors Balzano and Solomon) 

Laura Fazekas (’20): “Listening to the story of Charlotte Hawkins Brown was beyond inspirational. She had such drive to make a difference in the world and her community.”

Nicole Loffredo (’20): “The Charlotte Hawkins Brown Museum really opened my eyes to a new part of history that I was not fully aware of before this field trip. It was interesting to see how one person could take an idea and create it into something that impacts so many children.”

Kaleigh Wingate (’20): “The Charlotte Hawkins Brown Museum is an interesting local resource because it shows the perseverance and determination of an African American woman in the early twentieth century. Right after the times of slavery and during Jim Crow, Charlotte Hawkins Brown found a way to advance African Americans and especially African American women.”
