“The Moving Spirit” - Lucretia Mott at Seneca Falls 

May 11 - Auburn

Event has been postponed.

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.
