An ensemble of skilled actors from the Poets' Theatre give voice to the wide range of anti-slavery attitudes in Massachusetts during the decades leading up to the Civil War. Black and white, female and male, well-known and obscure, these important writers and orators, including Lydia Maria Child, Paul Cuffee, Frederick Douglass, and Angelina Grimke Weld, among others, transformed fringe ideas rejected by many in Boston as dangerous and fanatical into a mainstream movement for emancipation. Choose from either the 3:00 pm or 6:30 pm FREE show taped live in front of a studio audience--you!
