Please note: this event has been cancelled due to concerns around the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19).

A new wave of antislavery thinking swept the country in the 1830s as some churches demanded immediate emancipation of slaves and equal rights for free blacks. In this illustrated lecture, Rokeby Museum Director Jane Williamson presents the philosophies, strategies, and tactics of these abolitionists, compares their efforts with those of earlier abolitionists, and explores their impact on American society.
