The walking tour of Worcester’s Peace history, put on by the Center for Nonviolent Solutions, was a wonderful excursion into Worcester’s inspiring history of activism for peace, and racial and gender equality. The lecturers and actors did a superb job in bringing to life the citizens of Worcester who fought for these great causes, from colonial times to the modern day . .  . 
 

These dynamic and inspiring stories, creatively told, immersed us in Worcester's vital role in American history. We gained new insights and appreciation of our city and its people while walking down Main Street.

 

This program is supported in part by a grant from the Worcester Arts Council, a local agency, which is supported by the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency.
