Living History

Celebrating Black History Month

For Black History Month this February, we’ll be featuring a different activist with a connection to the Meetinghouse each Friday. Each profile will be accompanied with 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.


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.
