Heroism on the Plains: Story Songs of Courage and Determination from Improbable People and Places with Dan Holtz
Holtz celebrates and commemorates people, places, and events in Nebraska history through original songs (accompanied by guitar and harmonica) and the stories and background behind them. The songs’ subjects range from an African-American, born a slave, who came to have the largest landholding in early-day Nebraska; to a legendary sod house photographer; to a tribute to Susan LaFlesche Picotte, the first Native American woman to become a medical doctor; to a native Nebraskan who was the only Japanese American to fly in bombing missions over Tokyo in World War II; to a tribute to the the synergistic relationship between John Neihardt and Black Elk; and more.
This program is free and open to the public. There is no registration. If you have any questions, please call the Library at 402-873-5609. This program was made possible through MJPL's Harry and Grace Moller Endowment.
