Since 1874 the Chautauqua Institute offers a week-long residential program held in upstate N.Y. where adults focus on the arts, history and music related to a broad specific topic. Due to the huge popularity of Chautauqua, the MD Humanities Council has been bringing an abbreviated version to MD for 25 years.
This year the theme is “How Water Shaped Our History” and features three consecutive evenings where professional actors will portray Matthew Henson, early North Pole explorer; Jacques Cousteau oceanographer and filmmaker; and Grace O’Malley 16th century pirate queen who commanded men and had the respect of Queen Elizabeth as she challenged the seas. Each program presents a historical interpretation of the character by a professional actor and is followed by an interactive Q&A with the audience.
You may attend 1, 2, or 3 evenings, but please register separately.
This is Program 1: Matthew Henson:
early explorer of the North Pole.
