The annual Chautauqua program includes interactive, family-friendly presentations and is an educational program of the Maryland Humanities Council, presented in partnership with CSM. This year’s theme is “Sporting Lives” and will include 20th century athlete Wilma Rudolph. Rudolph, who is most known for being the first American woman to win three gold medals in track and field during a single Olympic game, was also a pioneer for civil as well as women’s rights. Rudolph will be portrayed on July 7 at the La Plata Campus. Illustration by Tom Chalkley.
