Ellen Garrison was born in the Robbins House in 1823. After her inspiring and challenging youth in Concord, she moved to Boston, where she became a teacher and joined the city’s social justice community. After the Civil War she moved to Port Deposit, Maryland, to teach newly freed people. In 1866, she and another teacher tested the nation’s first Civil Rights Act, which conferred citizenship and equal rights on African Americans. Join Maria Madison and Kerri Greenidge for an exploration of Ellen’s life, activism, and the work they and many others at The Robbins House have done to uncover Ellen’s story.
