THE AGITATORS Three Friends Who Fought for Abolition and Women's Rights

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Heather Alicia Simms, Anne Twomey, Gabra Zackman, Dorothy Wickenden [Prologue]

Biography & Memoir • 13 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

Narrators Heather Alicia Simms, Anne Twomey, and Gabra Zackman harmonize to memorable effect in Dorothy Wickenden's remarkable examination of three friends who led twin battles for abolition and women's rights in nineteenth-century America. Simms gives a witty and rousing rendition of Harriet Tubman, freedom fighter extraordinaire; Twomey is gentle and steely as Francis Seward, the publicly conventional and privately radical wife of Secretary of State William H. Seward; and Gabra Zackman is energized and clear as Martha Wright, uncompromising Quaker mother of seven. Their surprising and inspiring lives are woven together with those of such luminaries as Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Frederick Douglass, and Abraham Lincoln, for between them, they knew everyone. Informative, entertaining, unnerving, and stirring--listen and then share this book with all your friends. A.C.S.
