ARE: William Penn & Equality
Date: 01/13/2019
Time: 9:30:00 AM
Description:
 ARE session on William Penn and Equality. On Sunday, January 13 at 9:30 a.m. in the Music Room (basement) of the SAM building. Deborah Haines of Alexandria Meeting, who has led many well-received ARE sessions in the past, will discuss William Penn and equality. When Penn first arrived in the new colony of Pennsylvania in 1682, he quickly put in place a system for organizing settlement of the land. He ordered his surveyors to move outward from Philadelphia, creating contiguous townships consisting of small farms laid out along either side of a central road. William Penn’s townships have received little attention from historians, but they were just as much an expression of religious values as New England’s famed village centers. Come learn more about how the egalitarian Quaker concept of community shaped the landscape of southeastern Pennsylvania in the seventeenth century, and helped lay the foundations for American democracy.  For more information, contact Ron Wetteroth.  If you need child care in order to attend, please contact Marion Harrell by January 8.
