Film Screening: Borderland The Life & Times of Blanche Ames Ames

June 5, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm


Blanche Ames Ames (1878-1969) was an artist, activist, builder, inventor, a birth control maverick and a leader within the woman suffrage movement in Massachusetts. She also has an intriguing and rather unique connection to Jamaica Plain. Please join us for a screening of a film about the life of this trailblazing woman, followed by a Q&A session with historian Ed Hands, who is featured in the film.

This event is sponsored by the Jamaica Plain Branch of the Boston Public Library and co-sponsored by the Boston Women’s Heritage Trail, the Arnold Arboretum of Harvard University and the Jamaica Plain Historical Society

The event is virtual and will be held via zoom. Please pre-register here: https://zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_zBVGiHJpQiKYVIGU84hBJg
