Virginia Mae Hope–WWII Pilot
During World War II, Minnesotan Virginia Mae Hope served her country as part of the Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASP). The women who were part of WASP flew planes and assisted with wartime duties within the US, freeing up more men for fly airplanes abroad.
Minnesota History Players are bringing Virginia back to life at the Moorhead Library at 2 pm on Wednesday, March 13. She’ll be sharing her experiences with us, including what it was like growing up during the depression, how the lives and roles of women changed during World War II, and what her life was like as a WASP.
This performance is part of The Beat Goes On series, funded in part or in whole with money from the Minnesota Arts & Cultural Heritage Fund. If you like programs like this, be sure to let your legislators know.
