Women in the World of Frederick Douglass

Most people know about Frederick Douglass, the former slave, abolitionist, and freedom-fighter whose autobiography remains a monument in nineteenth-century American literature. But, what about the women behind the man who made his life and legacy possible?

Leigh Fought, author of the award-winning Women in the World of Frederick Douglass and professor of history at Le Moyne College, will tell the story of the important women who created and supported Frederick Douglass, including his mother and grandmother, slave-mistresses, two wives, and the many activist women who kept the movement for human rights alive.

The program is part of the Rising Towards Unity, a series of events that seeks to raise awareness of the influential role history of slavery continues to play in the United States as we struggle to achieve a more equal, just, and peaceful society. Rising Towards Unity is a project of the Friends of the Grafton Public Library, the Grafton Historical Society, the Grafton Public Library, and the Unitarian Universalist Society of Grafton & Upton.

Celebrating 50 Years Since the First Moon Landing

On July 20, 1969 humans first stepped from a machine made by scores of scientists and engineers onto the surface of the Moon... and four days later, all three crew members of that mission - known as Apollo 11 - returned safely to Earth.

In 2019, NASA will celebrate 50 years since those moments; 50 years of further discovery and exploration; and 50 years of challenges and obstacles, many overcome, but some yet to solve.

Join us for a presentation that will review some of the trivia, local connections and the drama surrounding NASA's fledgling efforts, and the race to the moon. We'll also discuss some of the science that came out of these missions. Then, we'll review some of NASA's current efforts to explore another tantalizing rocky terrestrial body - Mars - and how efforts to return to the Moon afford a prelude to manned missions to the Red Planet.

Weather permitting, attendees will even have an opportunity to step outside and view the moon for themselves through a telescope!

This presentation will be given by M.J. Johnson, a NASA Solar System Ambassador. This discussion does not require a technical background, is open to all ages, and should be accessible to broad audiences with an interest in space exploration.
