      "From Darkness to Light: Discovering Harriet Mason"

      Please join Friends of Banning Museum for a special lecture by Museum Director, Michael Sanborn. The lecture will be held on Saturday, April 27, 2013 at 10:00am in the historic Carriage Barn at the Banning Museum, located at 401 East “M” Street, Wilmington, CA 90744.

      Former slave Harriet Mason worked for the Banning Family in the early 1860’s at the height of the Civil War. It was her heroic actions that helped save many lives in the Los Angeles Harbor after the Ada Hancock disaster in 1863. Come and learn about this fascinating woman and the historic contributions that her family made to early Los Angeles history. There will be a Q&A session after the lecture. Admission is FREE for Friends of Banning members and $5.00 general admission. To RSVP or for more information call Friends of Banning Museum 310-548-2005.
