Miss Nancy

Here’s how the film’s website describes it: “[This] earnest and heartfelt documentary film… follows 79-year-old “Miss Nancy” Rascoe through the engaging task of teaching manners to children in her 200-year-old home in rural Hertford, NC. It’s a five-day and four-night summer etiquette camp like no other and the mix of activities are all rich with Miss Nancy’s true Southern gentility and grace from an era gone by.” 

Disclaimer: No etiquette tests will be given during or after this film screening. This event, which will be held in 116 Murphey Hall, is free and open to the public.
