Mass Humanities has awarded a grant to New Brook Farm to host two community discussions on “Shaping the Social Contract: Insights from the Women of Brook Farm.” The discussions will follow presentations of the Women of Brook Farm, a collaboration of NBF and the Boston Women’s Heritage Trail. Dr. Kerri Greenidge will lead the discussions, which will examine the interconnections of gender equality, abolitionism, and women’s suffrage at Brook Farm in the 19th century and current issues of racism and sexism.
The first program will take place on Sunday, November 4, 2018 at the Cambridge Public Library, Cambridge, Mass. at 2:00 p.m. Both programs are free and open to all.
