Americans Against Slavery

Brought to you by Odyssey 

March 29, 2023 - May 3 2023 (6 sessions)

Wednesday, 6:30 - 8:00PM ET

Virtual via Zoom


Course Description:

The Abolitionists fought to persuade their fellow citizens to end the brutal institution of slavery before the Civil War. Considered some of the boldest and most enlightened humanitarians in American history, these women and men faced apathy, abuse and violence to spread their message of racial equality. This class will profile a number of the most famous American opponents of slavery, including William Lloyd Garrison, Sarah and Angelina Grimke, Frederick Douglass, Sojourner Truth, Wendell Phillips, Lucretia Coffin Mott and John Brown.
