White House History Live: First Ladies and the National Portrait Gallery

Join us in learning more about White House History right from your own home. Our Facebook Live series, White House History Live, delves into the stories that make up the history of the Executive Mansion.

Join the National Portrait Gallery Senior Historian and Director of Research, Publications, and Scholarly Programs Dr. Gwendolyn DuBois Shaw as she discusses images of the newly-installed First Ladies exhibit, “Every Eye is Upon Me.” This exhibit is the largest portraiture display featuring First Ladies to take place outside of the White House. Dr. Shaw will discuss her curation of the exhibit and the complexity of First Ladies she aimed to highlight through the display. Visit the exhibit virtually here.

This event will be live streamed on the White House Historical Association's Facebook Page starting at 5 pm ET on December 8th.
