Program Description


While we know about Calico Jack, Blackbeard, and William Kidd as pirates, few know about Anne Bonny, who was Calico Jack’s Helmswoman and her companion, Mary Read, or Lady Mary Killigrew, or Queen Elizabeth I’s female Sea Dogs, or Sayyida al-Hurra, a Moroccan queen and pirate. Katrina Everhart will  highlight eight women, who worked the seas during the golden age of pirates. Everhart is extended studies coordinator for the Division of Online and Extended Studies at Lincoln University.
