Black Quaker Lives Matter Film Festival Event 3

The 2023 Black Quaker Lives Matter Film Festival & Forum
Saturday, 4 March, 1:00 PM EST: Sisters In Freedom
Black & White Women in the Abolition Struggle: Sarah Mapps Douglass

Join us on Saturday, 4 March, as we celebrate Women’s History Month with a unique look at early collaboration between Black and White women fighting for African American emancipation. The third event of the Black Quaker Lives Matter Film Festival & Forum honors Sarah Mapps Douglass (1806-1882) an abolitionist, educator, artist, and author. She is a member of the Morrey-Bustill Quaker family, which produced two centuries of African American Friends, and is also an ancestor of Paul Robeson. For our program, we will screen Sisters in Freedom, which tells the stories of trailblazing Black and White women, our honoree among them, who organized for both gender equality and the abolition of slavery. After our screening, we will host a discussion between eminent Haverford historian Dr. Emma Lapsansky-Werner and Joyce Mosley, author and historian of the Morrey-Bustill family (of which she is a member). Following their dialogue, our guest experts will participate in a Q & A with our audience.
