Event description

Description

Diana Webster discovered an American children’s book, 'The Story of the Edinburgh Doll', which told how 'little Mary's doll' was sent from Edinburgh to the Boston Anti-Slavery Bazaar in 1852. While researching to find out if the story were true, she learned about the network of Scotswomen, part of the 'Transatlantic Sisterhood' who raised funds for the anti-slavery cause.
