Who Were the Abolitionists?

Danika Cooley

The abolitionists were a group of people who wanted to get rid of (abolish) slavery. This book will tell you about some of them. They came from different places and had different stories, and God called them to serve him in different ways. But they each worked to make sure that a human being, made in the image of God, could not be owned by someone else. Included are profiles of: Granville Sharp, Phillis Wheatley, Olaudah Equiano, Thomas Clarkson, William Wilberforce, Zachary Macaulay, William Knibb, Sojourner Truth, Frederick Douglass, Harriet Tubman. Also includes a timeline of key dates.
