Lucille Ball

September 30, 2018

Lucille Ball

Lucille Ball was a comedian and television star who changed the face of the industry forever. Her work earned her four Emmy awards and honors from the International Radio and Television Society when she became the first woman to win their Gold Medal. In addition Lucille Ball was inducted into the Television Hall of Fame and recognized for her life's work by the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.

Lucy wasn't just an actress. She was the first woman to run a major television company, and used her show, I Love Lucy, to discuss important social ideas and stories. I Love Lucy, during it's six year run, tackled topics like marital issues, women in the workforce, interracial marriage and also pregnancy, a topic previously considered taboo on television. Lucille Ball broke barriers in Hollywood when she fought CBS to allow her hispanic husband, Desi Arnaz, to be cast as her television husband. 

Her work in theatre and the arts saved her from what would have otherwise been a difficult childhood. Her father died at a young age, her mother abandoned her temporarily and she was asked to leave school as she was "wasting their time". Lucy found her place in the arts. We honor her this month with a donation to the DC Collaborative, Arts and Humanities for Every Student. They work to provide public school and public charter school children in the DC metro area, equal access to quality arts education, through enrichment programs, paid field trips and seminars. Their work has provided arts education to more than 600,000 students since their creation.
