In celebration of Elizabeth Freeman Day, the MassArt Art Museum (MAAM) and The Trustees are partnering to present virtual programming about Freeman, an enslaved woman whose court battle for her freedom in 1781 helped make slavery illegal in Massachusetts. On August 21, 1781 Elizabeth “Mumbet” Freeman’s unprecedented case was presented in court and her freedom was granted the following day. The organizations invite audiences of all ages to celebrate this courageous woman’s life through a variety of virtual programming that includes artmaking, conversations, story time, and a tour.
