The life of Amy Kirby Post reveals an egalitarian, interracial, and mixed-sex network of activists who worked across the nineteenth century to achieve a democratic vision of social justice. Ties of family, friendship, and faith solidified this network, which was forged by radical Quakers like the Posts and the Motts, and free and fugitive blacks, including Frederick Douglass, William C. Nell, and Sojourner Truth. Amy and her husband Isaac Post were integral to this network and incorporated their social justice ideals into their family life, household, and business. In promoting racial justice, religious liberty, and the rights of women, Indians, and workers, Amy Post served as a conductor across diverse movements, orchestrating events and meetings and transmitting resources, ideas and tactics from one campaign to another.
