In Her Own Words: Mary Merrick Brooks and Strategies of Reform, with Sandra Harbert Pertrulionis

August 16 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Part of our “People of Concord” Summer Series, Professor Sandra Harbert Petrulionis will share the history of Mary Merrick Brooks, one of Concord’s most committed antislavery zealots in the decades leading to the Civil War. Brooks’ unpublished letters testify to the purposeful strategies of political reform she enacted–from pushy persistence and feminine wiles, to shaming and flattery, to outright begging. Mary Merrick Brooks is an American hero–come hear why!
