Details:The Moses Greeley Parker Lecture Series presents Judith Black in Meet Lucy Stone. In this first-person presentation, professional storyteller Judith Black presents Lucy Stone, a woman many called "the shining star" of the anti-slavery and woman's rights movements, and gives you a view of mid 19th-century America through the eyes of a woman who spent her life working to make the world better. At a time when women who dared to speak in public were greeted with ridicule, harassment and harsh criticism, Lucy Stone made her living speaking out about the two most controversial issues of her time: slavery and the legal subordination of women. From tree stump to church pulpit, her powerful oratory and her courageous example were instrumental in turning northern sentiment toward the cause of immediate abolition. She also waged a passionate struggle for equal rights for women, a struggle that continues today. This fight would outlive Lucy Stone, but forever carry her words, organization, commitment, and vision. The event is free and free parking is available at the Visitor Center parking lot at 304 Dutton Street, Lowell, MA. 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. For more on the Parker Lecture Series, visit www.parkerlectures.com.
