Ebenezer Maxwell Mansion is pleased to welcome Amy Cohen for an illustrated talk via ZOOM about the life of Octavius Catto, 19th-century civil rights activist. Catto was murdered in broad daylight on election day, October 10, 1871. Catto’s assassin, Frank Kelly, was not prosecuted. In her talk, Cohen draws parallels to what happened in the 19th-century and what is happening today. Join us for what surely will be a most informative talk with time for discussion afterward.
