OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — Metropolitan Community College will host six educational programs to celebrate Women's History Month, giving the public a chance to learn about the historical and political achievements of women.

This year's theme is "Visionary Women: Champions of Peace and Nonviolence" and will be reflected in each of the programs, which are free and open to the public.

The month's series begin with a video and discussion of "The Life and Times of Rosie the Riveter" on Monday, March 18, 2:30-3:45 at the Elkhorn Valley Campus. This explores the vital role American women played for the Allies during World War II.

"The Children of the Promised Lands," a discussion led by Angela Bates, executive director at the Nicodemus Historical Society, will explore the psychological, emotional, ethical and economic challenges of first generation free-born children after emancipation.
