Deep Roots Podcast: Benjamin Lay April 16, 2018


In this episodes, Mark tells the story of Benjamin Lay. Benjamin was a radical Quaker, abolitionist, and performance artist who drew ire from the Quaker elite in Pennsylvania for his fierce activism. He was also known as a man of fierce integrity. At just over 4 foot tall, he lived in a cave, grew his own food, practiced strict vegetarianism, and made his own clothing. In all things he sought to embody the call to love one’s neighbor.
