Join Philip Davies, Emeritus Professor of American Studies at De
Montfort University as we look at the lives of ‘The Shakers’. Ann Lee
and eight followers left Manchester for America in 1774. The United
Society of Believers in Christ’s Second Appearing, otherwise known as
Shakers, had emerged in the industrialising northwest of England
during the later years of that international spiritual ferment, the Great Awakening.
