Francis Wright

-She was also a writer and is described as a "freethinker.'
-She was against greed, capitalism, and organized religion.
-She fought for sexual freedom from a feminists perspective.
-She was an abolitionist and created a "utopian" community where slaves could be educated before being released as free citizens.  Ultimately the slaves from the commune were moved to Haiti to live freely after he commune financially collapsed.
-Wright was definitely a forward thinker and believed in the equality between genders as well as blacks and whites.
