I NOW PRONOUNCE YOU LUCY STONE, an immersive living history with History At Play founder and historian/actress Judith Kaloara Challenging discrimination is not easy; Lucy Stone was never one to take the easy road. The ﬁrst woman from Massachusetts to earn a college degree, Lucy was an ardent supporter of human rights. Always ﬁerce, her belief that women and men be equal was evident in both her political and personal endeavors. Her message inspired thousands to join the suffrage movement; even Susan B. Anthony credits Lucy’s impassioned speeches for her involvement. As a scholar, Lucy studied Greek and Hebrew, insisting that ancient scriptures had been mistranslated to objectify women. As a wife, Lucy refused to take her husband’s name, becoming the ﬁrst to do so in the nation, and leading to the moniker of “Lucy Stoner” to describe a woman who does just that! Lucy and her comrades were evolving from successful abolitionists to struggling suffragists. Their ﬁght was ferocious, so come along for the ride!
