Product Description

For as long as the scourge of slavery afflicted America, brave voices cried out against hte pernicious institution. Those eloquent cries resound again in this original anthology of primary documents from the 18th and 19th century antislavery and abolitionist movements.
Mason Lowance has assembled more than forty crucial speeches, lectures, and essays to trace the evolution of the most important and revolutionary reform in American history: the abolitionist crusade. Here are the riveting words of the men and women who led the crusade, including William Lloyd Garrison, Frederick Douglass, Lydia Maria Child, Harriet Beecher Stowe, and more.
