In a special presentation for Women’s History Month, Lucy Stone, played by storyteller/actress Judith Black, will visit the Adams Center. A contemporary of Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Lucy Stone, was one of the best-known female orators of her era and will address issues of women’s rights and abolition, plus share chapters of her own life with the audience. The performance is suggested for folks over the age of 11.
Stone will be summoned through the personage of Judith Black, who was commissioned to create this work by the Mass Foundation for the Humanities in partnership with the Tsongas Industrial History Center at the University of Massachusetts Lowell as part of the State House Women’s Leadership Project.
Black is a professional storyteller who has produced 13 CDs, featured in venues such as the Smithsonian Institution, the Montreal Comedy Festival, and seven times for the National Storytelling Festival. She has produced a variety of seminars and workshops for storytellers while being commissioned by the US Department of the Interior, NPR, religious institutions, and other non-profits to create original stories which strengthen their respective missions.
Join Black and the Kingston Public Library in traveling to a very important time in our nation’s growth and development while getting the opportunity to meet Lucy Stone.
