Susan B. Anthony Visits Albion

Jeanne Gehret performs as Susan B. Anthony.

Author and lecturer Jeanne Gehret, portrayed as abolitionist and women's rights activist Susan B. Anthony, recently spent several days with Albion Elementary School 3rd-5th grade health classes and Albion Middle School seventh-grade service-learning classes.

Gehret addressed Anthony's fight for equal rights for all citizens.

Topics included her early life, work with Frederick Douglass on slavery, and the national reform campaigns that led to several constitutional amendments.

The elementary and middle school students enjoyed learning more about Anthony and her ties to the Rochester area.
