25 Aug No Time To Waste ~ A Free Online Film Screening
During Black In National Parks Week The Joy Trip Project is pleased to host a FREE online screening of the documentary film “No Time To Waste ~ The Urgent Mission of Betty Reid Soskin”. Featuring the true story of the oldest living National Park Ranger, this compelling narrative recounts the importance of preserving our national heritage through a comprehensive interpretation of history that includes the lives of every American citizen. As a Black woman whose lived experience includes the Great Depression, Second World War, Civil Rights Movement and the dawn of the 21st Century Ranger Soskins offers a remarkable view of the past through the unwavering gaze of an elder’s wisdom.
On Wednesday August 26, 2020 at 7PM Central Time join us for a Facebook Live interview with National Park Ranger Kelli English, the chief of interpretation at Rosie the Riveter/WWII Home Front National Historic Park, Port Chicago Naval Magazine National Monument, Eugene O’Neill National Historic Site and John Muir National Historic Site.
