The Agitators by Mat Smart

Nineteenth Century Civil Rights Activist Frederick Douglass famously said, “Those who profess to favor freedom and yet deprecate agitation, are people who want crops without plowing the ground; they want rain without thunder and lightning.” Mat Smart’s compelling play The Agitators tells the story of the thunder and lightning of Susan B. Anthony and Frederick Douglass’ 45-year friendship. After meeting in Rochester in the 1840’s, they became great allies and, at times, great adversaries. They agitated the nation, they agitated (and sometimes aggravated) each other and, in doing so, they helped shape the Constitution and the course of American history.
