Lucretia Mott Speaks
The Essential Speeches and Sermons679
Committed abolitionist, controversial Quaker minister, tireless pacifist, fiery crusader for women's rights--Lucretia Mott was one of the great reformers in America history. Her sixty years of sermons and speeches reached untold thousands of people. Yet Mott eschewed prepared lectures in favor of an extemporaneous speaking style inspired by the inner light at the core of her Quaker faith. It was left to stenographers, journalists, Friends, and colleagues to record her words for posterity. Drawing on widely scattered archives, newspaper accounts, and other sources, Lucretia Mott Speaks unearths the essential speeches and remarks from Mott's remarkable career. The editors have chosen selections representing important themes and events in her public life. Extensive annotations provide vibrant context and show Mott's engagement with allies and opponents. The speeches illuminate her passionate belief that her many causes were all intertwined. The result is an authoritative resource, one that enriches our understanding of Mott's views, rhetorical strategies, and still-powerful influence on American society.

"Eye-opening and invigorating. The editors have, quite sensibly, employed a light editorial hand, preferring to let Mott's speeches take center stage, and to let Mott herself stand in the spotlight. This is a wonderful collection."--Anne Boylan, author of Women's Rights in the United States: A History in Documents "For those who want to delve deeply into the thinking of Lucretia Mott, this book offers an excellent look into her interrelated causes. . . . This collection shows how she managed to mention so many of her favorite topics in her talks."--Friends Journal "This book lays excellent groundwork for much-needed scholarship.... General readers will be pleasantly surprised to find a lively, spirited, radical, complex woman who defies common stereotypes." --Quaker Studies "This superb and authoritative collection of speeches and sermons of radical activist and renowned orator Lucretia Mott conveys the breadth and depth of Mott's visionary leadership in abolition, women's rights, religious and political reform, and education and peace."--Ellen Ross, author of The Grief of God: Images of the Suffering Jesus in Late Medieval England "Highly recommended."--Choice
