As the car emerged as the primary form of personal transportation in the last century, America's roads became central to connecting people and places. Among the most famous of these is Route 66, which served as the pathway to the west for many explorers and travelers--making it a memorable and influential part of automotive and American history.
The documentary film "Route 66: The Untold Story of Women on the Mother Road" investigates this history by looking at how women overcame segregation and gender discrimination to build fulfilling lives for themselves and generations to come on America's most beloved road.
The Route 66 Association of Missouri and the Lebanon Laclede Library are sponsoring this program in partnership with Missouri Humanities and with support from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
