The Incomparable Nellie Bly: America’s First Woman Reporter
At a time when a woman’s place was thought to be the home, Nellie Bly dared to travel the world in search of a story. Actress Anne Pasquale brings the renowned stunt reporter of the 1890s New York World back from the past. Through story, song, and participatory reenactments, students are engaged by this legendary woman’s life. They learn how Bly’s provocative reporting style changed journalism forever. “Nellie Bly” is a personal encounter with 19th-century America through the eyes of one of its most compassionate and heroic journalists.
