Freedom for One, Freedom for All? Abolition and Woman Suffrage, 1830s – 1920s

A two-week school teacher institute for thirty participants on the relationship between the abolition and women’s suffrage movements in the United States.

The two-week Summer Institute Freedom for One, Freedom for All?, a partnership between Brooklyn Historical Society (BHS) and the Museum of the City of New York (City Museum), will bring 30 middle and high school teachers to New York City to explore the intertwined histories of the abolitionist and woman suffrage movements in the United States from the 1830s through the 1920s. Using a rich array of primary sources and historical scholarship on view at both institutions, teachers will learn new narratives about these seminal movements in United States history and the connections between them. In light of upcoming important anniversaries for both the abolition and suffrage movements, educators will also learn ways to connect past with present using the lenses of race, gender, and class to unpack inequities and injustices that continue to challenge our nation.
