The Night of Terror recognizes the 33 suffragists who were arrested for nonviolent protest and were beaten in prison by guards on November 15, 1917. Meet at the New Century Trust (1307 Locust Street) for a discussion about this historic event and the women’s suffrage movement, and then gather at HSP for a look at some of our materials that document the history of women’s rights and a reception.  Teachers may receive Act 48 credit. Cosponsored by the New Century Trust and the Alice Paul Institute.
