From 1 to 4 pm, costumed interpreters bring history to life by sharing Greensboro stories in first person. Plus fun family activities in LeBauer Park as part of NC Folk Fest’s Folk in the Park!

* Meet Lifted Voices costumed interpreters portraying women from Greensboro history.
* Make suffrage buttons and sashes highlighting the 100th anniversary of women’s right to vote.
* Reshape electoral districts with the Gerrymander Madness VR experience.
* Color and send Four Freedoms postcards.
