    ‘Yours for Humanity – Abby’

    The Laura C. Harris Series presents “Yours for Humanity – Abby,” an inspiring one-woman play based on the letters and speeches of Abby Kelley Foster (1811-1877), a radical abolitionist and women’s rights activist. Despite constant harassment and intense ridicule, Foster lectured across the country for twenty years, nearly two of which were in Ohio. Celebrate Women’s History Month and experience Foster’s world when social and political differences divided the United States – a time not unlike our own. Lynne McKenney Lydick, an actress, activist, and mother of three, has portrayed Foster since the play premiered in 2004 as a program for the Worcester Women’s History Project.
