Anti-Slavery Societies Leading up to the Civil War

Faculty member Carey Millsap-Spears discusses the life of artist Sophia Peabody Hawthorne, wife of noted author Nathaniel Hawthorne. Sophia’s life offers us a glimpse into 19th century New England leading up to and through the US Civil War. Sophia’s life illustrates that sometimes a woman’s worst enemy is the idealized character of the Angel in the House who leaves her creative self behind. This is part of the One Book, One College program and Women’s History Month Celebration. This event was hosted by the Moraine Valley Community College Library.
