If you could meet the suffragettes responsible for women getting the vote, what would you ask them? What if you could interview the first "front page gal" who worked at a Chicago newspaper, in 1878? Or, what would you like to learn from the first African American to win an Oscar, or the first female African American police officer in the nation?

Meet these fascinating females, and more, at WAHA's annual Living History Tour, which takes place every autumn at Angelus Rosedale Cemetery. Amid the elaborate headstones and monuments, costumed actors bring to life - and tell the often-riveting stories of - a half dozen residents from Los Angeles' earlier times. This year's tour is slated for Saturday, September 25, and we invite your participation.
