‘Contradictory Place’ describes the extraordinary anti-slavery efforts taking place in Lowell in the mid-19th century when the city’s cotton mills were at their peak. Professor Robert Forrant and Maritza Grooms visit the sites that still exist in downtown Lowell where abolitionist activity occurred, including a stop on the Underground Railroad.
