    Giants of Abolition: Frederick Douglass, John Brown, and Abraham Lincoln

    Join us for the first event in the Freedom Rising Lowell Lecture Series launching the Museum's yearlong
    commemoration of the 150th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation and of the Massachusetts
    54th Regiment, the first black soldiers from the north to serve in the Civil War.  Through a new exhibit,
    lectures, concerts, Teacher Summer Institutes, and children's events, Freedom Rising in 2013 celebrates
    the roles of Boston's black and white abolitionists in monumental historic events.
