Charlotte Cushman Discussion

Seward House Museum Directors of Education and Collections will discuss “Charlotte Cushman: Symbol of an Age” at the NYS ERHC. A renowned actress of her time, Cushman was also a Seward family friend and early figure in LGTBQ+ history. Jeff Ludwig and Matt Mac Vittie will explore these stories as well as sexuality in the 19th-century and the complicated ways Cushman subverted “traditional” roles in a Victorian age often associated with repression.
