Lecture Series: The Chautauqua Movement

Friday, March 15


Program:
The Chautauqua Movement 
Presented by Jim Craft

The Chautauqua Movement originated in New York in 1874 as a two-week encampment for Sunday school teachers. Emphasizing Protestantism, education, recreation, and the arts, Chautauqua communities spread throughout the country – even into Michigan – bringing culture to thousands and shaping the political debates of the Progressive Era, including women’s suffrage, trust-busting, and child labor. Join author, Jim Craft, as he shares the history of the Chautauqua Movement.
