Co-Sponsored by the History Department, Suffolk University and The Bostonian Society Part of the Series “Oratory and the Power of Talk,” Co-Sponsored by the Department of History, Northeastern University
Each year from 1772 to 1775, massive gatherings of men, women and children were held at Old South Meeting House to commemorate the anniversary of the Boston Massacre, with rousing speeches by patriots John Hancock, Benjamin Church and Dr. Joseph Warren. Join us to hear selected excerpts of these speeches, performed by an inter-generational group including students, actors, and historians, in the grand hall where the orations took place 240 years ago! Audience members can join the fun and read from a selection of excerpts. All participants will have the opportunity to win a fun prize! This program is made possible with funding from the Lowell Institute. FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC, registration requested at http://osmhmarch9-16.bpt.me
