A two-week institute for thirty school teachers that would explore the interconnected histories of the abolitionist 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 (MCNY), will bring thirty 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 the suffrage movement, 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.
