Wayne Luney

Freethought Trail

In August, Wayne and Gloria Luney attended an event in Syracuse, NY sponsored by CSH (Council on Secular Humanism) to mark the 25th anniversary of the reopening of the Robert Green Ingersoll Birthplace Museum. The event also dealt with the connections among freethought, abolition, and the women's rights movement in upstate New York during the 19th Century. A bus trip to important sites was included. Major leaders of all three movements lived and worked there. There were more connections among the movements than one might initially think.

Wayne will talk about Matilda Joslyn Gage, the forgotten woman's rights advocate who worked closely with Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton. He will also talk about Gerrit Smith, who funded the abolition movement with his wealth. Following the conference, Wayne and Gloria visited Seneca Falls, New York, the site of the 1848 women's rights convention.
