Faulkner quoted in The Nation piece on origins of the American boycott

Carol FaulknerCarol Faulkner, associate dean and professor of history, was interviewed for The Nation article "The Boycott’s Abolitionist Roots." The author explores Lucretia Mott and the Free Produce Movement, a boycott of goods produced by slave labor led by Quakers in the decades leading up to the Civil War. "Mott, who does not see politics as a solution, this idea that instead you were changing the society and the culture around these practices, it still remained something very powerful," says Faulkner. "You have to change the way people think and feel about slavery, not the way that they vote." 08/15/19
