C-SPAN Marketing Representative Jessica Lindquist says the series will move beyond traditional depictions and highlight the political influence of First Ladies. 

"With the series what we're trying to do is show the other side of what the First Lady endured as the influencer of the President. Not just showing how she hosted parties and the beautiful dresses that they all wore but actually showing how she was an influence to the President and policies that he enacted," says Lindquist.

The bus is presenting lesson plans and educational material on Friday at the Arkansas State PTA Convention and Dunbar Magnet Middle School. 

The public is invited to attend a First Ladies presentation at the Clinton Presidential Library from 10:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. on Saturday.
