“Rebels with a Cause” Lecture Series @ the Great Hall of Saint James Place
Oct 5 @ 2:00 pm

The Great Barrington Historical Society, in collaboration with Saint James Place, presents “Elizabeth Freeman’s Case for Freedom”, the first lecture in the “Rebels with a Cause” series to be offered on Saturday, May 11th at 2 PM at Saint James Place.

The speaker, Dr. David Levinson, is a cultural anthropologist and former vice president at Yale University’s Human Relations Area Files, an anthropological think tank. He is co-author of One Minute a Free Woman – Elizabeth Freeman and the Struggle for Freedom, written with Emilie Piper. In addition to discussing Freeman’s lawsuit, he will analyze the case’s impact on abolishing slavery in Massachusetts and consequences for the African-American community in the Berkshires.

Free parking is available across the street at Berkshire Community College South.

“Rebels with a Cause,” the theme of this 2019 series, features three talks highlighting Great Barrington’s colonial period. Each lecture examines the research and interpretation of historical events, and provides more in-depth discussion and understanding of events and people whose stories continue to resonate today. Other lectures in the series include a program on Shays’ Rebellion on October 5th and a program Laura Secord on November 2nd.
