Actress Mimi Kennedy to perform play about women’s rights visionary Matilda Joslyn Gage
Mimi Kennedy hasn’t always been passionate about history. In fact, until the mid-1990s, she even disliked it. The actress, author and activist was doing research for a fictional story when she called Sally Roesch Wagner, the executive director at the Matilda Joslyn Gage Foundation, with a question. When Wagner told Kennedy about who Gage was and her role as an American suffragist and abolitionist, Kennedy said that a lightbulb turned on inside of her head.
