Meet Massachusetts’ radical abolitionist, human and women’s rights activist, Abby Kelley Foster. Travel back to 1854 and enter her world—a tumultuous time when social and political differences divided our country. Hear Abby’s emotionally powerful orations against slavery and prejudice, which changed the hearts and minds of many. See how one person can effect extraordinary changes in society by sheer determination, perseverance and hard work.

A question and answer session will follow the performance. Free and open to the public, refreshments will be served
