The significance of October 21, 1835

Following the near lynching of Garrison, despite threat to their own lives, members of the Boston Female Anti-Slavery Society courageously marched down Washington St., through the angry anti-abolitionist mob.

Black and white, arm in arm, women, resolute.

And so, we will gather on October 21, 2017 to continue this courage, this love, and this honor of Horace.
