Yours for Humanity – Abby

Rising Towards Unity

March 24, 2019

2:00 pm, Great Hall, One Grafton Common

Lynne McKinney Lydick’s one-woman show “Yours for Humanity – Abby”
Meet Massachusetts’ radical abolitionist, human and women’s rights activist, Abby Kelley Foster.
Travel back to 1854 and enter her world—a tumultuous time when social and political differences
divided our country. Hear Abby’s emotionally powerful orations against slavery and prejudice,
which changed the hearts and minds of many.

See how one person can effect extraordinary changes in society by sheer determination,
perseverance and hard work. A Q&A discussion will follow the talk.
