The Agitators: The Story of Susan B. Anthony and Frederick Douglass
A history podcast from PRX
Credits: Cedric Mays (Voice Actor), Madeleine Lambert (Voice Actor), Genevieve Sponsler (Managing Producer), Ashley C. Ford (Host), Jocelyn Gonzales (Executive Producer) (edit)
The Agitators tells of the enduring but tempestuous friendship of Susan B. Anthony and Frederick Douglass. Great allies? Yes. And at times, great adversaries. Young abolitionists when they met in Rochester, New York in the 1840s, they were full of hope and a common purpose. As they grew to become the cultural icons we know today, their movements collided and their friendship was severely tested. Follow these brilliant, flawed, and rebellious activists with host Ashley C. Ford. Their message still matters.
This six-part podcast is based on the play The Agitators; playwright Mat Smart used historical documents to imagine Susan and Frederick’s conversations. The Agitators is brought to listeners by the Women’s Suffrage Centennial Commission, the National Park Service, and PRX.
