FRANKFORT, KY (3/10/12) – The Kentucky Historical Society (KHS) will host Food for Thought: Anne Shelby as Aunt Molly Jackson, at noon Wednesday, March 21, at the Thomas D. Clark Center for Kentucky History in downtown Frankfort.
Born in 1880 in Clay County, Aunt Molly Jackson was a miner’s wife, mother, midwife, political activist, union organizer and ballad singer. She became an instrumental figure in the movement for workers’ rights and became an outspoken advocate for miner’s unions throughout the Depression Era. Join award-winning author Anne Shelby as she performs excerpts from her one-woman show “The Lone Pilgrim: Songs and Stories of Aunt Molly Jackson” and shares stories of her Kentucky feminist folktales. A book signing will immediately follow the program.
The menu for the luncheon features apple bleu cheese spread with assorted crackers, spinach salad, roasted chicken breasts, dumplings, green beans, glazed carrots, rolls, cherry cobbler and iced tea or coffee.
