Making Democracy Work

Special Performance of "The Agitators"

As part of our Centennial Celebration, we are partnering with PURE Theatre to present The Agitators, the inspiring story of the friendship between Frederick Douglass and Susan B. Anthony.

Join Us at the Theater!

"The Agitators tells of the enduring, yet tempestuous, friendship of Susan B. Anthony and Frederick Douglass. Great allies? Yes. And, at times, great adversaries... They agitated the nation, they agitated each other and, in doing so, they helped shape the Constitution and the course of American history." + Theatre Communications Group.
