Co-Facilitated by the Great-Great-Great Granddaughter of William Lloyd Garrison, Kate Lange
Radicals. Agitators. Troublemakers. Liberators. Called by many names, the abolitionists tore the nation apart in order to make a more perfect union. Men and women, black and white, Northerners and Southerners, poor and wealthy, these passionate antislavery activists fought body and soul in the most important civil rights crusade in American history. What began as a pacifist movement fueled by persuasion and prayer became a fiery and furious struggle that forever changed the nation.
In 1838, Frederick Douglass escaped slavery, eventually joining William Lloyd Garrison in the antislavery movement.*
