Deck the Halls: Female Abolitionist Societies and the Evolution of Christmas
Thursday, December 9 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm$7
This quilt, made by Lydia Marie Chapman, was among the items on sale at the Boston Female Anti-Slavery Society’s third annual Christmas fair in December 1836. A report on the fair in the January 2, 1837, issue of The Liberator, Boston’s abolitionist newspaper, described it as “made of patchwork in small stars” and published a transcription of the poem in its center.
