In honor of the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing, Virginia residents shared their memories and stories across generations, and in teams of two submitted their work in a celebratory contest hosted by The Center for Educational Partnerships at ODU, the Virginia Grant Space Consortium, the ODU Libraries, and Slover Library.
The winning entries now display in the Slover Library Forum, free and open to the public. Entries are also available in a digital anthology as part of Norfolk Public Library’s collection on Biblioboard.
Throughout Virginia’s history, women have played important, but often overlooked, roles as educators, entrepreneurs, health care providers, religious leaders, farmers, artists, writers, reformers, pioneers, laborers, and community builders. As part of the 2019 Virginia Women in History project, this exhibit honors eight women who have made important contributions to Virginia, the nation, and the world.
