Live Performance: "The Life & Times of Molly Brown"
Historian Lisa Marks brings the "Unsinkable" Molly Brown to life in this one-hour live performance at the Hannibal History Museum. Hear her amazing life story: her birth in Hannibal in 1867, the childhood years during Hannibal's Gilded Age, her migration to Colorado in 1886, the road to wealth and fame, her experiences aboard Titanic, and more! Learn the socioeconomic and cultural factors that shaped Margaret during her childhood in Hannibal, leading her to not only become the heroine of the Titanic tragedy but also one of the most important human rights activists and social reformers of her generation.
