Description: 

Screening of excerpts from the PBS miniseries The Abolitionists: American Experience.

Abolitionist allies Frederick Douglass, William Lloyd Garrison, Harriet Beecher Stowe, John Brown and Angelina Grimké turned a despised fringe movement against chattel slavery into a force that literally changed the nation.

The screening will be followed by a panel discussion. A panel of historians (Jane Williamson, Ray Zirblis, and Lyn Blackwell) will conduct a lively discussion about the abolition movement in Vermont, placing our state in a national context.

The event is free and open to the public.
