Early in 2020, the Commission partnered with playwright Mat Smart, Phoenix Theater in Indianapolis, Indiana, Riverside Theater in Iowa City, Iowa, and Theatre Horizon in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to sponsor special live performances for students of The Agitators, which tells the story of the friendship between abolitionists and suffragists Susan B. Anthony and Frederick Douglass.
After the closure of theaters due to the coronavirus pandemic, Theatre Horizon again worked with the Commission to create a virtual workshop for high school students using The Agitators as the basis of the curriculum. Over 100 students participated in this course free-of-charge. The students explored and created monologues inspired by Susan B. Anthony, Frederick Douglass, and other "agitators." The course ran for four weeks with students meeting twice per week.
