Discussion: Early Resistance: Women, Religion, and Politics

Date: 
Sunday, February 11, 2018 - 1:00pm to 2:30pm

Women played a pivotal role in the changing political culture of the United States through support of abolition and the women's rights movement. Prof. Marcia Robinson of Syracuse University will join our discussion to share her research and insights into how Frances Ellen Watkins Harper, an African-American abolitionist, suffragist, and writer, fought in a resistance movement that resonates today.

General admission to the program is $7 for adults and $3 for students with ID. (Members of the Oneida Community Mansion House are admitted for no additional donation.). The discussion is part of the 2018 series, “Beyond Belief: Religion in American Life” held monthly from January-May.
