Sunday, April 28, 2019 at 2pm
By Stacy Roth
Why was tea so important in the lives of 18th century people that fashion-conscious families posed for portraits with their tea sets? Did Great Britain lose her American Colonies over “the cup that cheers?” Find out in this unusual costumed presentation of tea lore, history, songs, poetry, living history display and demonstration.
Stacy Flora Roth is a freelance museum educator, public speaker, vocalist, and performance artist whose specialty is educational presentations on themes in American History. Ms. Roth approaches her subjects from many angles: incorporating activities, reproduction objects, music, storytelling, roleplay, demonstrations and other techniques. She is a native of New Jersey and a lifelong enthusiast of state history, ignited from a fascination with the American Revolution that began in the 4th and 5th grades.
Through her company, History on the Hoof, she currently offers programs on the social history of tea, period songs, the experiences of Revolutionary War heroine Mary Hays McCauley (Molly Pitcher), and the Homefront during WWII.  She is a popular speaker on the roster of the New Jersey Council for the Humanities’ Public Scholars Project (formerly the Horizons Speakers Bureau).
Ms. Roth holds a BA in History from Kean University, an MLS from Rutgers School of Libr
