"Proclaim Liberty Throughout All the Land": Boston Abolitionists, 1831-1865

In the decades leading up to the Civil War, Boston became a center of the national antislavery movement, and in 1831 William Lloyd Garrison, "all on fire" for the cause, began publication of The Liberator, the country's leading abolitionist newspaper. There was strong resistance to the radical movement not only in the slaveholding South but among Northerners' as well. The exhibition features manuscripts, photographs, artifacts and portraits related to the abolitionist movement in Boston

Exhibit open Mon-Sat 10am-4pm now until May 24th at 1154 Boylston St. in The Fenway
