The Color of Rose

By Kathrine Bates. Based on a concept by Chuck Fries. Directed by Melia Bensussen.

The Color of Rose

 


Now we get to hear from Rose. As the aged Rose Kennedy prepares herself for a pressing interview, she revisits her past through the eyes of her youth and middle-age. Young Rose Fitzgerald dreamed big, but she couldn't have imagined that she would become one of the most venerated icons of the 20th century.

Enduring 104 years from cradle to grave, this woman of complexity, strengthened by faith and love of family,
inspired the nation.

Events in her life — tragedies and joys — branded her face into the American psyche. Her candid reflections paint a unique and fascinating picture of this legendary family.

ROSE KENNEDY WALKING TOUR
Hosted by Boston Women’s Heritage Trail



Dates: Sunday, January 30 & Saturday, February 5
Time: 1:00-2:30 PM 

The Boston Women's Heritage Trail is pleased to partner with Arts Emerson to honor the legacy of Rose Kennedy, a vanguard of women's history in Boston and beyond. Come with us on a Rose Kennedy Walking Tour! 

Tour one of Boston’s oldest neighborhoods and see such landmarks as her birthplace in Boston’s North End (home of Mayor John “Honey Fitz” Fitzgerald) and Old St. Stephen’s Church where she was christened, to the new Greenway named after Rose Kennedy.

About BWHT 
In 1989, a group of Boston Public School teachers, librarians, and their students brainstormed and inaugurated the Boston Women’s Heritage Trail. Like The Hub’s two extant walks—the Freedom Trail and the Black Heritage Trail—this new historic trek promised to take visitors through fascinating slices and stories from Boston’s illustrious past. Unlike its predecessors, the Boston Women’s Heritage Trail highlighted the work of women, from household names like Abigail Adams, Phillis Wheatley, Amelia Earhart, Louisa May Alcott, and Rose Kennedy, to less-familiar leaders like Chew Shee Chin, Julia O’Connor, Clementine Langone, and Melnea Cass. 

In the twenty years since its founding, The Boston Women’s Heritage Trail (BWHT) has worked to restore women to their rightful place in the history of Boston and in the school curriculum by uncovering, chronicling, and disseminating information about the women who have made lasting contributions to the City of Boston.
