In Margaret Fuller's Memoirs she wrote, "I remember how, as a little child, I had stopped myself one day on the stairs, and asked, How came I here? How is it that I seem to be this Margaret Fuller? What does it mean? What shall I do about it?" During her brief life of 40 years, Fuller made every effort to answer those questions, supported and documented by her inquiring nature and writings, all to fulfill American women's growing intellectual and spiritual needs. In this program hosted by James H. Bride, distinguished educators Megan Marshall, Joan Von Mehren, Peter McFarland, and Joel Myerson contribute to the first comprehensive overview of Margaret Fuller's life, times, and achievements. The Margaret Fuller Legacy examines her Transcendental period as editor of the first literary magazine in America, The Dial, along with her professional and personal relationships with Ralph Waldo Emerson and Henry David Thoreau. Additionally, the video brings to light her Conversations - the first successful woman's studies initiative in America - in Boston and at Brook Farm and her role as the first American female journalist and foreign reporter with the New-York Tribune. The program concludes at the Fuller monument at Mt. Auburn Cemetery, Cambridge, Massachusetts.
