This program presents a screening of two films about the story of the Oberlin-Wellington Rescue (1859), a local key event in the prelude to the US Civil war.
"The Oberlin Abolitionists" explores how communities like Oberlin, Ohio rose to support freedom for individuals fleeing southern slavery. The story continues in "The Trial of the Century," telling the story of the subsequent trial at Public Square, Cleveland, Ohio. The works are presented by Peter Manos, the writer and historian, and Kevin Cronin, with the Bodwin Theatre Company. They are produced with the support of Cuyahoga Arts and Culture, and released at no cost to schools, libraries, Ideastream and other nonprofit organizations.
