Mrs. Lincoln and Mrs. Kennedy

If Mary Todd Lincoln and Jacqueline Kennedy met, what would they discuss? Listen as Laura Keyes and Leslie Goddard bring Mrs. Lincoln and Mrs. Kennedy to life in an imagined meeting at the Smithsonian Museum’s First Ladies exhibition. Mrs. Lincoln and Mrs. Kennedy reminisce about living in the White House, negotiating the role of First Lady, and the challenges they endured after their husbands’ deaths. Laura Keyes (who portrays Mrs. Lincoln) and Leslie Goddard (who portrays Mrs. Kennedy) both have extensive experience in portraying these historic women.
