LUCY N. COLMAN!
July 26th is your special day!
Please know that you have many admirers among the Friends of Mount Hope. Ever since the publication of Sophia McRae's outstanding article about your life in the Epitaph Fall and Winter 2020 issue, we have become ardent Lucy Colman fans!
Lucy Colman was an educator, writer, and prolific social reformer who was actively involved in the abolitionist, women's suffrage, and Freethought movements. She also worked for racial justice and for the education of African Americans. Her hidden, broken-down gravesite in Section M was discovered several years ago by Anna Jannes, and we are now restoring her grave thanks to a grant from the Rochester Area Community Foundation. This project is led by Tom Jones. 2020 will be a banner year for LNC!
