In 1835 when an angry anti-abolition crowd almost lynched William Lloyd Garrison, the Mayor advised the women that he could not provide protection and urged them to cancel their meeting. Determined to continue their anti-slavery work, the women walked, black and white, arm in arm, through the angry crowd to hold their meeting at the home of Maria Weston Chapman.
We will actually walk the walk, tracing the march of those amazing women!
