Film Screening: “QUAKERS: The Quiet Revolutionaries” Sunday, Feb 17, 12:30pm
Today’s Quakers share a spiritual DNA with their earliest forebears. They follow in the footsteps of dedicated Friends who battled authorities for abolition of slavery, civil rights, religious freedom, women’s suffrage and resistance to all war. The acclaimed documentary “QUAKERS: The Quiet Revolutionaries” (2018), directed by Janet Gardner, tells the story of a Quaker legacy of social activism spanning four centuries.
