Lunch and Learn: Abolition and the Monadnock Region

August 15, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

From the 1830s to the 1860s, abolitionists worked to end slavery in the United States. At this Lunch and Learn, we uncover the history of the abolition movement in the Monadnock Region. Learn about Moses Cheney’s Underground Railroad station, Frederick Douglass’ speaking engagements in area churches, the work of local anti-slavery societies, and the 1842 mob that broke up an anti-slavery convention in the Hancock Meetinghouse.

Lunch and Learn programs begin with a delicious lunch of wrap sandwiches and salad with a light dessert. After the meal, guests enjoy a lively, illustrated talk.
