Presented by: Amazing Earthfest


Date: May 8, 2022

Time: 12:00 AM Utah Time - 11:59 PM Utah Time

Join Amazing Earthfest in celebrating legendary 100-year-old National Park Service ranger Betty Reid Soskin's inspiring life, work and urgent mission to restore critical missing chapters of America's story. At the Rosie the Riveter/WWII Home Front National Historical Park, Betty illuminates the invisible histories of African Americans and other people of color. Her efforts have changed the way the National Park Service conveys this history to audiences across the U.S., challenging us all to move together toward a more perfect union.
“.... "A warm, wonderful, delightful, and moving portrait of one of the most interesting and charismatic people in the National Park Service. The film tells how Betty Reid Soskin has helped teach National Parks how to tell America's history while including the stories of Americans who have traditionally been left out”. Mark Stoll, Professor of Environmental History, Texas Tech University, Co-editor, To Love the Wind and the Rain: African Americans and Environmental History.  (55 mins)
