Into the Great Unknown
Smithsonian Associates Discovery Theater on Tour
Saturday, February 9, 2019
Leadership, 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 that summit 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. Journey with modern mountaineer Sophia Danenberg to the summit of Mount Everest. 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.
