HOBO_talk_2PM_lgRosie the Riveter/World War II Home Front National Historical Park, located in the wartime boomtown of Richmond, California, preserves and interprets the stories and places of our nation’s home front response to World War II. In this special presentation, Kelli English, Chief of Interpretation for the park, will help us explore the efforts and sacrifices of American civilians on the home front.  The program will feature a showing of Home Front Heroes, a short film featuring interviews with Rosies and other people – now in their eighties and nineties – who lived through the war years and still exude the spirit that so infused the city of Richmond and many other towns across the United States. These were “ordinary people who did extraordinary things”—many faces, many stories, and many truths weave a complex tapestry of myths and realities from this remarkable time of loss and opportunity.
