Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation hosted Nancy Reagan Day

On Tuesday afternoon, May 17th  2022, The Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation hosted Nancy Reagan Day: The Legacy, The Lens and The Lady, in Washington, DC, a program commemorating the Nancy Reagan Centennial that included three distinct panels featuring journalists and scholars, the photographers who documented her, and former White House staff members.

FLARE Founding members Nancy Kegan Smith, and Anita McBride (who served as moderator),  participated in the first panel focused on Nancy Reagan's legacy including Mrs. Reagan’s perception of her role as First Lady, her accomplishments, how the media perceived that role, how those perceptions changed from beginning to end of the Reagan presidency, and in the post White House years.  The event was live-streamed on YouTube and filmed by CSPAN.
