Created Equal: America's Civil Rights Struggle
Mount Vernon Hotel Museum & Garden 417 East 61st Street Manhattan

Join us for a conversation about the parallels between 19th-century abolitionists and our need for modern-day abolitionists. Documentary film clips will provide the historical perspective for a discussion about the human rights violations that exist in the world today and the continuing struggle to create equal rights for all. Hear what motivated Frederick Douglass, Angelina Grimke, William Lloyd Garrison and Harriet Beecher Stowe in their battle to end slavery, and what we can learn from them. Panelists Rabbi Steven Burg, Eastern Director, Simon Wiesenthal Center, and Jimmy Lee, Executive Director, Restore NYC, will lead the discussion.
