Download Our Latest Zine on Local History of Abolition and Women’s Rights!

Thanks to a Humanities NY and Hudson Community Schools’ matching fund grant, the students of Hudson High School’s Writing Center studied primary source documents, photos, and places about the abolition and suffrage movements in our local area and New York State. We created a zine showcasing their creative work based on their study, which you can download as a PDF through the link below.
