The Story of Quakers in North Carolina



Quakers first arrived in the Carolinas in 1665, and by the end of the century, they were a dominant presence in the colony. Later migration of Quakers from Pennsylvania and Nantucket brought a strong anti-slavery element. As a nonconformist group, Quakers held particular views about “loving the world with weaned affections,” which led often to conflict with the prevailing culture. We will explore the impact of Quaker attitudes about religion, peace, simplicity, equality, and integrity to their story in the Old North State through the centuries. Along the way, we’ll encounter responses to war, work on the Underground Railroad, work for civil rights, and contemporary Quaker controversies.
