Judith Black – “Meet Lucy Stone”

_0005_jblackIn this first-person presentation, professional storyteller Judith Black presents Lucy Stone, the woman many called “the shining star” of the anti-slavery and Woman’s Rights movements. Experience the mid-19th century through the eyes of a Massachusetts woman who dared to speak in public to sway public sentiment about the two most controversial issues of her time: slavery and the legal subordination of women. This fight would outlive Lucy Stone, but forever carry her words, organization, commitment, and vision. RSVP by e-mail to: TIHC@uml.edu This presentation is part of a series of events celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Tsongas Industrial History Center, a partnership of Lowell National Historical Park and the UMass Lowell Graduate School of Education.  Also part of Lowell Women’s Week 2017.
