Johnson House: Annual Freedom Essay Contest

February 16, 2012

The Johnson House, circa 1867

What is the difference between protest yesterday and today? What impact does protest have on society? What was the impact of the Civil Rights Movement? Students addressed these questions in the Annual Freedom Essay Contest sponsored by the Johnson House. This year’s contest commemorates the 324thAnniversary of the Protest Against Slavery, the first formal protest which was composed by a group of Quaker men in Germantown in 1688.

Prizes will be presented to first place winners and runners-up on February 26th, 3-5 p.m. at the Johnson House.

Coach Jim Ellis, a renowned swim coach, will be honored at this event for his commitment to the education and  social development of children.

This event is free. Call 215.438.1768. or e-mail aneal@johnsonhouse.org with questions.
