“A must see… A powerful history lesson that needs to have a voice” (Rochester Democrat and Chronicle).
The Agitators tells of the enduring, tempestuous friendship of Susan B. Anthony and Frederick Douglass. Young abolitionists when they met in the 1840s, they were full of hopes, dreams, and common purpose. This is the story of their 45-year friendship – from its beginning in Rochester to the highest halls of government. They agitated the nation, they agitated each other, and – in doing so – they helped shape the Constitution and the course of American history. Presented in celebration of the 100th Anniversary of women’s suffrage – and in the midst of the Iowa Caucuses.
