VIRTUAL LYCEUM: UNEASY INQUISITION: THE JOHN BROWN STATUE IN NORTH ELBA

October 27, 2020 @ 7:00 pm 8:30 pm

The Grange turns INSIDE / OUT this fall to provide movies, lectures, music and more via Zoom and other digital platforms. To help keep everyone healthy, we’ll be presenting great programs that you can be part of wherever you are.

Virtual Lyceum lecture #4: Statues and memorials on public land are being debated across the country. Amy Godine, historian and author, will plumb the lost history and meanings of an Adirondack icon, the statue of John Brown at his farm in North Elba. Whether you love it, hate it, or are not sure of its place today, this 85-year-old landmark memorial to the renowned abolitionist invites fresh consideration.

The Virtual Lyceum series is made possible through the generous support of the Glenn and Carol Pearsall Adirondack Foundation.

The Fall Lyceum lectures will be presented via Zoom. You can access them through your computer, smartphone, or by dialing in on a regular phone (audio only). You must register IN ADVANCE so we can email you the Zoom link. You can register for the entire series or for an individual lecture. We will record the lectures and make them available later if you can’t watch them live.

There is no charge for the lectures. Your donation to support the Grange and our programs is greatly appreciated. Please go to the DONATE page to make a contribution. Thanks!
