First Ladies: Influence & Image (C-SPAN Original Series)
A new original series from C-SPAN, First Ladies: Influence & Image, debuted on February 18, 2013, President’s Day. The series will run from February 2013 to February 2014 in two seasons. (See C-SPAN’s website for the TV Schedule.)
“C-SPAN is producing a two-year feature series on the First Ladies, examining their private lives and the public roles they played in the White House. Produced in cooperation with the White House Historical Association, each week “First Ladies: Influence and Image” will feature the women who served in the role of First Lady over 44 administrations. This project is the first of its kind –a comprehensive biography series on all of the First Ladies produced for television.
C-SPAN and the White House Historical Association also will collaborate on a video-rich website to accompany the series. The interactive site will feature historic letters, documents and photographs, classroom resources, biographies, recordings, as well as additional resources.” -C-SPAN First Ladies: Influence & Image
While First Lady Rosalynn Carter’s episode does not show until December, we did want to go ahead and spotlight C-SPAN’s information page dedicated to her. It includes biographical information and several pertinent video clips related to the Carters.
Since December is a bit away, be sure to check out the Jimmy Carter Library’s website for information about Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter in the meantime! Another great resource is The Carter Center’s website.
