    Remembering the Women of Slavery, Lest We Forget

    Wyck Historic House, Garden, and Farm

    6026 Germantown Avenue Philadelphia PA 19144
    • Saturday March 23rd 2019, 2:00pm to 3:45pm
    Join friends and neighbors for an afternoon of thoughtful consideration of the lives of women who lived through enslavement in America. The Harriet Tubman Living History Experience highlights and heightens public awareness of the Underground Railroad, Civil War, and the life of one of the 19th century’s most celebrated figures: Harriet Tubman.

    After the Harriet Tubman Experience, guests will have the opportunity to hear Gwen Ragsdale, curator of Germantown’s Lest We Forget Slavery Museum, read a selection from her fascinating and highly relevant book, Peculiar Relationships: A Fictional Novel That Describes the Evolving Relationships Between Black Women and White Women from Slavery to Current Day (2014).

    $25; Friends of Wyck $20; Students under 25 $10. This program is strongly recommended for ages 9 and older.
    $10 - $25
