About the Event

The Life and Work of Mary Burnett Talbert: Suffragist and Human Rights Advocate

The live program scheduled for 2 p.m. October 10 at Sonnenberg Gardens & Mansion was changed to a virtual event, to be live-streamed at the same time.

Historian and Associate Professor, Lillian S. Williams, University of Buffalo, spoke on Mary Burnett Talbert, an African-American suffragist, and early 20th Century reformer. Talbert was President of the National Association of Colored Women's Clubs and led the NAACP's anti-lynching campaign.

This was the second of three programs on the theme “Struggle for Women’s Suffrage: Politics and Race” that the 1816 Farmington Quaker Meetinghouse Museum hosted in 2020.  

This video was produced by the 1816 Farmington Quaker Meetinghouse Museum and may be used for educational purposes only. It was available until December 31, 2020 on our YouTube channel. To access the video, please send a request to us via email.


A small Quaker community built a simple meetinghouse in rural western New York - and from that vantage point witnessed (and often led) reform movements that changed democracy in nineteenth century America.
