You can do it

The Historic Trust presents a free online showing of “Invisible Warriors: African American Women in World War II” from 7-9:30 tonight. The documentary is a conversation among African American women about life during World War II. They heeded Rosie the Riveter’s call and fled lives as domestics and sharecroppers to join the 20 million women who helped America win the war. Learn more at www.thehistorictrust.org.

Laugh it up

Pacific Stageworks presents in-person performances of “Exit Laughing” at 7 p.m. Friday, Saturday, Feb. 25 and 26 and at 2 p.m. Saturday, Sunday, Feb. 26 and 27, at TownePlace Suites by Marriott, 17717 S.E. Mill Plain Blvd., Vancouver. Tickets are $20 or $18 for seniors, students and military personnel. Price includes appetizers and desserts. The show’s mature humor isn’t suitable for children.

For the birds

Naturescaping of Southwest Washington will host a bird identification webinar 1-4 p.m. Sunday via Zoom. Learn the basics of bird identification and learn to recognize common backyard birds in Clark County, with a focus on sparrows. Attendees will share photos they’ve taken of local birds and the class will identify them together.

Music of freedom

In honor of Black History Month, Re-Imagined Radio presents a tribute to “Destination Freedom,” a late 1940s radio show that focused on the cultural contributions of Black Americans. This episode, which airs at 1 p.m. Monday on KXRW-FM and KXRY-FM, will focus on music, with excerpts from two episodes of the series, one featuring composer W.C. Handy and the other trumpeter Louis Armstrong. Learn more at www.reimaginedradio.net.
