There will be a recreation of "Freedom Seekers" Quaker wedding from the 19th century. Most Quakers don't believe there are "slaves" but that people can be "enslaved." Freedom Seeker is the term used for those who were fleeing the south during the 1800's. Quakers would perform weddings for those who wished this first step of basic human rights.
