SL09353 In and Out of Africa: Mormon Families’ Adventures From 1929–2009

From the platinum blond film star sent to Africa to shoot a documentary, to her latter-day granddaughter sent to South Africa as a missionary, to the Brockbank sisters’ work to send LDS African women to college—join us as we follow three generations (and counting) of Brockbank women on their sojourns in Africa! This presentation will focus on film star Edwina Booth, sent to Africa to be in a documentary film; LDS missionary Kay Brockbank Weber who served in South Africa with husband Robert; and Kay’s work with her sisters to set up the Brockbank Education Fund, which has supported more than 130 LDS African women through college/training.
