Example text

The most prominent vehicles for this confrontation were the abolitionist newspaper and the sermonic tract, combined with the powerful oratory of the lyceum or speaker’s platform. Wendell Phillips was particularly well regarded as a prominent abolitionist speaker, and he and Garrison became the leading speaker and writer of the antebellum abolitionist cause. They were joined by leading black abolitionists such as Frederick Douglass and David Walker, and by early feminist advocates and abolitionists like Lydia Maria Child, Angelina Grimké Weld, and Sarah M.

William Lloyd Garrison (1805-1879) is generally considered to be the dean of the abolitionist movement in the United States. Influenced early in his life by the Quaker rejection of chattel slavery and its inhuman practices, Garrison became one of the earliest and most outspoken advocates of the complete and total emancipation of the slaves, which he first articulated in Benjamin Lundy’s paper, The Genius of Universal Emancipation. ” He was a brilliant organizer, and founded two antislavery societies to carry on his work.

He was originally named Frederick Augustus Washington Bailey. He would later take the name “Douglass” from a character of Sir Walter Scott whom he admired. His adolescent years were miserable ones, with much suffering as a plantation hand, and he was early separated from his mother, who worked as a field hand some twelve miles distant. His recollection of the few meetings he ever had with his mother are some of the most moving lines of his Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, the first of his three autobiographical accounts.
