Central Carolina Women in Business Social
Join the Central Carolina Women in Business for our October Monthly Networking Social hosted by the Hillsborough/Orange County Chamber of Commerce. This month the host location is Burwell School Historic Site. Join us for this special experience of history, performance art, and networking.
Enjoy an evening of networking and connecting with fellow women in business, including a special treat from Historic Hillsborough Commission members - Brenda and Sara Stephens.
The mother/daughter duo will give us a peek into their performance as the older and younger Elizabeth Keckly in the play, Behind the Scenes, which has been performed at the Burwell School for four consecutive years. The play is based on the memoir of Keckly, a former slave at Burwell School.
Elizabeth Keckly was an enterprising businesswoman who purchased freedom for herself & her son, then went from slave to business owner to dressmaker for, and closest friend of, First Lady Mary Todd Lincoln. Her inspirational story highlights the tenacity and perseverance of a woman who not only overcame one of the worst human experiences but also excelled and thrived as a woman in business.
