The Great Tide of Humanity: Race & Gender Reform in 19th Century Concord, MA
A panel discussion on how some 19th century thinkers and activists guide us in addressing race and gender reform today.
Henry David Thoreau and his fellow Transcendentalists sparked a literary revolution, 60 years after the American Revolution in the tiny town of Concord, MA. Armed with the ideas of social reform, the Transcendentalists of Concord, the Concord Female Anti-Slavery Society, Thoreau women, and early Civil Rights Activist Ellen Garrison addressed the reform issues of the day -- slavery, the aftermath of slavery and women's rights.
Join us for a lively evening where Concord, Massachusetts historians and social rights activists come together to talk about the 19th century revolution that was fought with a pen and continues to capture the hearts and minds of social reformers today.
