NAHOF symopsia Elijah Parish Lovejoy 681


The National Abolition Hall of Fame and Museum (NAHOF) in Peterboro,NY.

19th Century abolitionists presented for the Colgate University Upstate Institute Abolition Symposia on Saturday afternoon, Oct. 19 at the Peterboro United Methodist Church, across the road from NAHOF at 5255 Pleasant Valley Road.

Elijah Parish Lovejoy (1802 – 1837) was nominated and presented by Ary J. Lamme III PhD, Emeritus Professor, Department of Geography, University of Florida in Freedom’s Breath Comes Not from the Mouth of a Cannon: Lovejoy, American Religion and Abolition. Abolitionist Lovejoy gave the ultimate sacrifice in his efforts to end slavery – he was violently murdered in Alton, Ill. by a pro-slavery mob because he would not stop publishing his anti-slavery newspaper. Dr. Lamme will review Lovejoy’s life, examine the relationship between 19th C. American religion and abolition, and discuss the need to establish abolition in America’s moral pantheon.
