THE AGITATORS May 3-18, 2019
*Limited 3 Week Run!*

The Agitators tells of the enduring, yet tempestuous friendship of Susan B. Anthony and Frederick Douglass.

Great allies? Yes? And, at times, great adversaries.

Young abolitionists when they met in Rochester in the 1840s, they were full of hope, dreams, and a common purpose.

This is the story of that 45-year friendship – from its beginning in Rochester, through a Civil War and to the highest halls of government.

They agitated the nation, they agitated each other and, in doing so, they helped shape the Constitution and the course of American history.
