When: Saturday, December 10, 2022, 7pm
Old South Presbyterian Church
29 Federal Street, Newburyport
Newburyport celebrates William Lloyd Garrison’s legacy on his birthday. Every year, we invite a well known author, historian, or public speaker to talk about Garrison’s life, and how it is still relevant today.
The talk focuses on the legacy of slavery, its continuing impact on the United States, and current issues around diversity, inclusiveness, and LGBTQ acceptance.
The talk will take place in-person on Saturday, December 10 2022 at the Old South Presbyterian Church in Newburyport Massachusetts at 7 PM.
This year, Kabria Baumgartner, a Newburyport resident and professor of history and Africana studies, will be the featured speaker.
This year, the title of the talk is: I Will Be Heard: Antislavery Printing and Youth Activism at William Lloyd Garrison’s Liberator Office
Historian Kabria Baumgartner will examine the lesser known role that Garrison and his radical antislavery newspaper played in teaching Black youth communication arts skills that they used to advance the antislavery movement and their own careers in diverse occupations.
