The Moving Spirit”: Lucretia Mott at Seneca Falls

Drawing from Lucretia Mott’s experience as a Quaker minister, abolitionist, and reformer, hear celebrated author and historian Carol Faulkner explore her distinctive perspective on the 1848 Seneca Falls Convention. Information on resources related to abolition, anti-slavery and the Civil War housed in local collections, as well as the New York State Archives, will be made available. The interactive “Seeing Equal Rights in NYS” exhibit – showcasing the creative ways New Yorkers organized to stand for justice from the 1800s to modern day – will also be on display. No reservations required. Carol Faulkner is Professor of History and Associate Dean for Academic Affairs at the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs at Syracuse University. She is the author of Women’s Radical Reconstruction, Lucretia Mott’s Heresy: Abolition and Women’s Rights in Nineteenth-Century America, and Unfaithful: Love, Adultery, and Marriage Reform in Nineteenth-Century America
