CELEBRATE WOMEN'S HISTORY MONTH! VIRTUAL PROGRAM
THURSDAY, MARCH 24, 2022 7:00 PM
Please join us as we celebrate Women’s History Month with the Prudence Crandall Museum, a National Historic Landmark located in Canterbury, CT, and learn why, by an act of the General Assembly, Prudence Crandall became Connecticut's State Heroine.
In 1832, Crandall, the white principal of the Canterbury Female Boarding School, was approached by a young African American woman named Sarah Harris asking to attend the academy. When residents protested the school’s integration and parents threatened to withdraw their students, Crandall closed her school and reopened in 1833 for African American students.
What happened next?
Watch a half-hour documentary “To All on Equal Terms,” followed by a short Q&A with museum curator Joanie DiMartino to learn more.
