Jane Addams: Worthy Choices
Annette Baldwin, historian, lecturer, actress, and pioneer in developing historical portrayals
In 1889, Jane Addams, with Ellen Gates Starr, founded Chicago’s Hull House settlement to tackle the social and economic inequities permeating an over-crowded Chicago Westside neighborhood.
In this portrayal of Jane Addams, developed and performed by Annette Baldwin, we’ll meet one of America’s most respected and admired women as she shares the story of her personal struggle to find purpose. Learn about the inspiration behind Hull House and how Addams, and the extraordinary women who joined her, fought for progressive reforms in Chicago.
