Festive Board – Monday, August 7, 2017

Our popular annual Festive Board is being held::

Monday, August 7, 2017
Cash Bar – 6:30 p.m.      Dinner – 7 p.m.
Location:  Columbia, MD   

Distinguished Presentation: “Josephine Baker:  Erotic Dancer, Entertainer, WWII Hero, Humanitarian, Mason”

Josephine Baker was an American-born French singer, dancer, actress, resistance fighter in World War II, and civil rights leader who spoke at the 1963 March on Washington at the side of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.  This presentation will focus on her life including the fact she was a Mason.  It should be a fascinating presentation accompanied by photographs, video and other supporting material.
