Meet Philadelphia’s female reformers at the moment they chose to move.  In this world premiere theatrical experience, audiences step into the minds of a small collective of historically-overlooked women who formed the Philadelphia Female Anti-Slavery Society. Collectively they stood to abolish slavery, spark the women’s rights movement and address many societal wrongs. Discover this multiracial collective as they work to frame their discourse and the struggles that helped shape the city of Philadelphia and the society we live in today.  Join us as we transform our theater space into their 19th century meeting. A part of the Philadelphia International Festival of the Arts 2013

Freedom, Fire, and Promiscuous Meetings: the Philadelphia Community Lyceum is a combination exhibit, reading room, film series, and public forum.

How and why is it difficult to procure solid sources on African American and Progressive White Women in American history?  This panel discussion serves as a moment for the Bride’s audiences and the Philadelphia community to join in a thoughtful conversation about collective memory in terms of women.  Is there a way to defeat the erasure marks in women’s history? Panelists include Margaret Jerrido, current archivist of Mother Bethel A.M.E. Church and former head of the Urban Archives in Temple University libraries.  Panelist Dr. Kariamu Welsh is a dance professor at Temple University and scholar of cultural studies within Africa and the African Diaspora.
