Colloquy: Home: A Personal Space; with Sarah Zahnstecher and Karen Guccione @ Brooklyn Society for Ethical Culture

Home is a big word. We can think of it in both rational and imaginative ways. In this colloquy we’ll explore both. (Colloquy provides opportunities for each of us to reflect on our own lives in relationship to the topic and listen and learn from one another, within the format of a sharing circle.)

Platform Meeting – Not a Fit Place: Black Women in the Abolitionist Movement

Platform Meeting - Not a Fit Place: Black Women in the Abolitionist Movement @ Brooklyn Society for Ethical Culture

Honoring Black History Month: Black women were among the courageous many who opposed the institution of slavery in America and worked for its end.  They fought not only slavery, but assumptions that the speaker’s lectern was an unfit place for a woman, especially if the audience was mixed men and women, and assumptions that African Americans and former slaves were not fit for mixed racial company.  Hear about some of the lesser-known women abolitionists (including Frances E. W. Harper and Charlotte Forten Grimké), plus a few most have heard of and can learn more about (Harriet Tubman, Sojourner Truth), and their contributions to the anti-slavery movement of their day.
