The history of Black Abolition

Thousands of 19th-century US born, Black radical reformers, enslaved and free, campaigned for the end of bondage by every means necessary. Frederick Douglass and Harriet Jacobs were joined by revolutionary women and men who sought to awaken the US nation and the world to slavery’s atrocities.

The speeches, narratives, and histories of Nathaniel Turner, David Walker, and Maria W Stewart went through numerous editions and were widely read across the western hemisphere.
