Huge shout out and thanks to reporter Jamil Ragland from the New Haven Independent Review Crew for taking our Spirits at Stowe tour last week to learn about Spiritualism in the 19th century.
““The spiritualism that Stowe’s sister, Isabella Beecher Hooker and her husband, John practiced was heavily influenced by the practices of enslaved people from that era,” the tour guide explained. She talked about how the Stowe house was in a highly segregated area of the city. How Connecticut was the last state in New England to ban slavery.” – excerpt from the article
