The Abolitionists: Hear the Panelists!
On Tuesday, February 5 at 7:00pm, we’ll be hosting a screening of excerpts from the new PBS miniseries “The Abolitionists,” which offers an overview of the national abolitionist movement before the Civil War through the lives of five major historical figures (Frederic Douglass, William Loyd Garrison, John Brown, Angelina Grimke, and Harriet Beecher Stowe). The screening will be about 30 minutes long, and is provided by and in partnership with Vermont Public Television. We’re following it with a panel of scholars who will discuss the particulars of the abolition movement in Vermont, placing our state in a national context. The panelists are Jane Williamson, Ray Zirblis, and Lyn Blackwell.
