Women’s History Month Walking Tour: Jefferson Market to Café Society

You’ll have three chances to join Village Preservation as we take a walk through history in our own backyard. Co-sponsored by the Village Alliance, we will begin with a discussion of the current site of Jefferson Market Library and the impact this location has had on women’s history in New York City. We’ll end at Café Society, celebrating Billie Holiday and her courageous performance of Strange Fruit at that location. (Meeting location will be shared upon registration.)

In between, we’ll learn about women like Lorraine Hansberry who impacted the arts, literature, and culture, as well as those who fought for justice, such as Edie S. Windsor and Thea Clara Spyer. This is the first of our new Women’s History Walking Tours series that will premiere new tours in Greenwich Village, the East Village, and NoHo throughout the year.
