WUaS Idea- and Academic Resources[edit]


At a San Francisco Friends' Meeting study group last night, we were reading the inspired, Quaker Abolitionist John Woolman, and I was wondering how Quakers might create a Ken Burns-informed documentary of Woolman, or even a film. Let's find a Friendly budding film-maker to do something like this. I'd love part of such an interpretation to focus on Woolman's use of the word "tender," so present in his journals, and emerging from a Friendly milieu/culture/language, - and from 250 years ago. (November 29, 2012).
