The Museum of the American Revolution's special exhibition Black Founders: The Forten Family of Philadelphia, introduces visitors to Forten and his descendants as they navigated the American Revolution and cross-racial relationships in Philadelphia to become leaders in the abolition movement in the lead-up to the Civil War and the women's suffrage movement.
The Forten family has deep ties to the Quaker community, from James Forten's attendance at Anthony Benezet's school, his wife and daughters' roles in co-founding the Philadelphia Female Anti-Slavery Society with Lucretia Mott and other Quakers, and more.
The Friends Historical Association invites you to join us any or all of the day's program for our Spring Outing on Sunday, May 7, 2023.
