To celebrate the spirit of Inde-pendence, we will welcome Abigail Adams to the Library. An active participant in our nation’s birth, Abigail Adams is well known for her advocacy of women's rights, especially in education, and her opposition to slavery. As a valued confidant and advisor to her hus-band John Adams, the nation's second president, Abi-gail cautioned him that the Founding Fathers should “remember the ladies” in the new laws they would write for our young country. Together, they were the first inhabitants of the White House. Mrs. Adams is portrayed by JoAnn Peterson for the WV Humanities Coun-cil’s History Alive program.
In addition to being in-person in the Library auditorium, this program will be available to watch live on Facebook Live, on YouTube, and on the OCPL website's LWB Livestream page. Log into your Facebook or YouTube account during the program to leave questions for our presenters in the comments box. They will answer them during the live broadcast.
