Lecture & Film Screening of Democracy’s Messengers: The Never-Before-Told- Story of Young Americans on Capitol Hill
This free event will begin with a lecture/presentation about the history of U.S. Congressional Pages on Capitol Hill as well as the Washington State Page Program co-presented by Marcie Sims, Green River College Professor and author of Capitol Hill Pages: Young Witnesses to 200 Years of History (McFarland 2018), and Bruce Haulman, retired Professor of Green River College, Vashon Historian, and author of A Brief History of Vashon Island (History Press, 2016).
Following, we will screen a 30-minute documentary about the history of the Capitol Hill Page Program entitled Democracy’s Messengers: The Never-Before-Told- Story of Young Americans on Capitol Hill, and the event will culminate with a question and answer period where the audience can ask questions about both the federal and state page program.
