Ruth Hartley Mosley Center
to Highlight Women's History Month With Fundraiser

In honor of Women's History Month the Ruth Hartley Mosley Memorial Women's Center; Land Mindz, INC and Visionary Communications have teamed up to present "I AM Ruth Hartley Mosley" - an evening and afternoon with the owner of the house as interpreted by Land Mindz, INC founder, president and artistic director Dr. Shelton Land. The performances will take place March 19 from 6pm - 8pm and March 20 from 3pm - 5pm at the center (626 Spring St.) Tickets are $20.00.

This journey through time is a fundraiser and will feature actors in character retracing the life of Hartley Mosley. The Savannah native was a visionary Black female leader that achieved greatness at the height of the Great Depression, Jim Crow and the Civil Rights struggle.

The years 1910 - 1967 is when Hartley Mosley established herself as a force. During this period she was named head nurse of the Colored Females Department of the Georgia State Sanatorium in Milledgeville; became a licensed mortician and funeral home owner; served as a nurse with Macon's health department and Bibb County schools and rose to social prominence as a world traveler/philanthropist and later a Civil Rights activist and local NAACP leader.

One of the valued remnants of Hartley Mosley's philanthropic endeavors is the Ruth Hartley Mosley Memorial Women's Center, which served as her residence during her time in Macon. Gerri Marion-McCord is the center's executive director and says the event is an extension of Hartley Mosley's life as a revered caretaker and respected socialite. "Mrs. Hartley Mosley believed in educational and entrepreneurial empowerment through the sharing of information, talents and gifts," said Marion-McCord. "Our goal is to familiarize the public with her even more through this production."

In addition to performers recounting Hartley Mosley's life, patrons will be treated to an educational tour of the historic site and light refreshments. Space is limited for both show-tours. As a result, reserving a ticket early is encouraged. Tickets are available at a discount rate for groups. To purchase tickets to "I AM Ruth Hartley Mosley" call 478-742-6409 or email RHMC staff at rhm75@bellsouth.net.
