Event Description

In the summer of 1831, Prudence Crandall was asked by a group of Canterbury citizens if she would consent to establishing a private academy to instruct local girls. Public sentiment shifted dramatically, when Sarah Harris, a twenty-year old black woman, was admitted to the school in the fall of 1832. Crandall lost much support from the community, and was forced to dismiss those students not already withdrawn by their parents.

Their voices are the vehicles used to serve up the drama, and underscore the enormous courage of these women.

There are two seatings. 1:00p.m. and 2:30p.m. Please call the Museum for reservations at 860-546-7800
