Radical Equality: the Northampton Association of Education and Industry

Share This Page

Slavery and freedom. Democracy and opportunity. Rights and responsibility.

Immerse yourself in an extraordinary community of Utopian abolitionists and reformers of the 1840's.

Radical Equality is one of a series of online exhibit by the Collaborative’s Emerging America program. Each exhibit showcases gems from the collections of Western Massachusetts museums and models strategies to engage learners through compelling stories and source materials. Part of our aim is to inspire teachers and students to identify and engage the remarkable stories of their own communities and publish them.
