zb. Norwich’s Harris Sisters

 All Walktober, 24/7

When Sarah Harris entered Prudence Crandall’s all-white female academy in nearby Canterbury at age 20, Crandall made the choice to close and reopen an academy exclusively for African American girls with Sarah and her younger sister, Mary, both attending the school. In the aftermath of the school’s violent closure, the Harris sisters continued to lead accomplished and impactful lives fighting for equality. This video will highlight significant sites related to the Harris sisters in Norwich and features sites on the Norwich Freedom Trail (walknorwich.org).
