Convention Days at Seneca Falls:  The Quakers, the Meetinghouse, the M’Clintocks

Each profile is accompanied by links for further learning, information about present-day organizations that highlight Black activist's contributions to the culture and history of the Greater Rochester area as well as the Finger Lakes area, and recommended reading.
