While much is known about the white men and women who were involved in the anti-slavery movement, the black abolitionists have been largely ignored. This book, written by one of America's leading black historians, sets the record straight. As Benjamin Quarles shows, blacks were anything but passive in the abolitionist movement. Many of the pioneers of abolition were black dozens of black preachers and writers actively promoted the cause black organizations were founded to support their brothers black ambassadors for freedom crossed the Atlantic blacks were instrumental in the operation of the Underground Railroad. Quarles puts it eloquently: "To the extent that America had a revolutionary tradition [the black American] was its protagonist no less than its symbol."
