One-Day Seminar: Social Reform Movements 1790-1850 hosted by Rankin County, Mississippi Schools (Held Online)
July 14 @ 8:55 am - 12:30 pm
The Early Republic and Antebellum eras experienced tremendous growth and change in American society. This seminar explores the many movements that rise: abolition, temperance, social reform, women’s rights and the Second Great Awakening.
This program will be conducted as a Socratic discussion, utilizing primary source documents as the only readings (found here), and with the Discussion Leader facilitating the conversation, instead of lecturing or presenting. Registrants, therefore, are highly encouraged to read all the documents in advance and come ready with questions. All attendees will receive a Letter of Attendance at the end of the seminar.
