Liberty Workshop Series 

What was it like to grow up during the Revolution? Join Museum educators as we discover the story of young revolutionary James Forten and how he – and other children and teens – experienced this turbulent time. Together we’ll discuss Forten’s life as he grew up in the heart of Revolutionary Philadelphia and examine how the Revolution helped shape him in his formative years while also considering how his experiences were similar to and different from those of other young people. Walk away from this workshop with ideas for how Forten’s story can help students imagine life in the Revolution.
