Frances Drake: Abolition and Women's Rights in 1850
The local abolitionist and champion of women's suffrage steps out of the pages of history and into your classroom to tell her story. Included are tales of William Lloyd Garrison, the Underground Railroad, and the challenges of fighting for freedom for all as a woman with limited rights and power in a provincial community.

Teachers should play an active role in ensuring appropriate audience behavior and are requested to sit with their classes. Teachers are further requested not to correct papers during the program. It is distracting to the performers and, we believe, gives students the wrong message about audience courtesy.
Please introduce the performer as a Young Audiences of Massachusetts artist.
