In this presentation of I Now Pronounce You Lucy Stone, History At Play™, LLC Founder and Artistic Director Judith Kalaora is Lucy Stone: The first woman from Massachusetts to earn a college degree, a fierce abolitionist, and human rights activist. Challenging discrimination is not easy, but Lucy is never one to take the easy road... even Susan B. Anthony credited Lucy for her involvement in the tumultuous Women’s Suffrage Movement.
As a scholar, Lucy studied Greek and Hebrew, insisting that ancient scriptures had been mistranslated to objectify women. As a wife, Lucy refused to take her husband’s name, becoming the first to do so in the nation, and leading to the moniker of “Lucy Stoner” to describe a woman who does just that!
Lucy and her comrades were evolving from successful abolitionists to struggling suffragists. Their fight was ferocious, so come along for the ride!
Suitable for all ages. Run time: 60 minutes. Followed by Q&A.
