In this livestream episodic series, Pay-Per-HAP invites audiences to explore the mind of an escaped laborer and mariner of late 18th Century Boston. Living Historian Jon F. Rice embodies the vigor of Attucks in a solo presentation, Cripsus Attucks: Revolutionary Recollections of a Poor Man in Boston. Attucks was one of some 3,000 mariners living in Boston; a seaside town of approximately 15,000 people. Like many of his fellow townsmen, Attucks did not enjoy enfranchisment, granted only to white, male, property owners, and was ineligible to vote on the laws that governed his life. If only Attucks were to have survived the American Rebellion, he could share his wisdom! In Revolutionary Recollections, we experience a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to meet the elder Attucks at an age he never would reach; learning from his incomparable wisdom and enduring spirit!
