WEST HARTFORD, CT: Racial Justice Program with Dimensional Dance
Dimensional Dance performs Prudence Crandall and Sarah Harris: Whole-Souled Women at 3:00 PM!
Set in the 1830s this hip hop and contemporary ballet tells the story of the Connecticut educator, Prudence Crandall, and Sarah Harris, one of her first Black students. These women risked their lives to advocate for racial justice and challenge the status quo of educational discrimination.
Discover the story of the Canterbury Female Boarding School in this brief pre-performance talk at 2:00 PM!
In 1832, Crandall, the principal of the Canterbury Female Boarding School, was approached by a young Black woman named Sarah Harris asking to attend the academy. When residents protested the school’s integration and parents threatened to withdraw their students, Crandall closed her school and reopened in 1833 for Black students. Learn what happened next and the legacy of the school with Prudence Crandall Museum curator Joanie DiMartino.
