Into the Great Unknown: African American Adventurers & Explorers
Thursday- Friday, Feb. 7-8 at 10:15 a.m. and 11:30 a.m.
Ripley Center, Smithsonian
Ages 6-12 (Grade 1 to 6)

Fábulas Fairy TalesLeadership, courage, and adventure take center stage in this inspiring Discovery Theater original. Meet Matthew Henson, co-discoverer of the North Pole, and Barbara Hillary, the first African American woman to reach it nearly 100 years later. Thrill to the frontier exploits of the hard-riding mail carrier “Stagecoach Mary” Fields and Nate Love, the former slave who became the legendary cowboy nicknamed Deadwood Dick. And learn how astronauts and aerospace pioneers Guion Bluford and Mae Jemison are charting a whole new frontier today. From the Pole to the prairies to outer space, the histories and heroism of these African American women and men attest that true grit and personal power can push us toward greatness.
