Please join us for a special Mother’s Day Brunch honoring Julia Ward Howe, best remembered as the poet who wrote “Battle Hymn of the Republic” – worked to establish a Mother’s Peace Day. Howe dedicated the celebration to the eradication of war, and organized festivities in Boston for years. Written in 1870, Howe's "Appeal to womanhood" was a pacifist reaction to the carnage of the American Civil War and the Franco-Prussian War. The appeal was tied to Howe's feminist conviction that women had a responsibility to shape their societies at the political level.
The program will include a locally sourced brunch, with performance by the New American African teen dancers, as well as opportunities for action and excellent company. It is a child friendly event and there will be programming and activities for children.
