Featured Documentary: “The Abolitionists”, 180 minutes

The Abolitionists brings to life the struggles of the men and women who led the battle to end slavery: Impassioned New England newspaper editor William Lloyd Garrison; former slave, author, and activist Frederick Douglass; Angelina Grimké, daughter of a rich South Carolina slaveholder; Harriet Beecher Stowe, author of the enormously influential Uncle Tom's Cabin; and John Brown, ultimately executed for his armed seizure of the federal arsenal at Harpers Ferry.  These five individuals turned a fringe movement into a force that literally changed the nation.

Reservations are required as a pizza lunch will be served during intermission.
