Live hangout with the National Women's History Museum Monday! Follow the event to get the livestream link at 12pm ET. #ArtTalks #hangoutsonair #history #women  
 
Join us March 23rd for a live #ArtTalk  with the National Women's History Museum about History from the Women's Perspective!

History is full of exciting stories about interesting people who achieved amazing things. All too often, however, the popular narrative has not included women. Using National Women’s History Museum’s newest exhibit on the Google Cultural Institute “New Beginnings: Immigrant Women and the American Experience”, we’ll discuss how to incorporate women’s perspectives into historical stories.   

Browse through the online exhibit at : http://goo.gl/zzbswi and send us your questions/comments!
This Hangout On Air is hosted by Google Art Project. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

March 17 1992: South Africans vote for mandate to end apartheid.
Below, a photo taken in Pietersburg on that day: http://goo.gl/iC5ciu
The result of the election was a large victory for the "yes" side, which ultimately resulted in apartheid being lifted.
