Influence of Prominent Abolitionists: The African-American Mosaic

The abolitionist movement took shape in 1833, when William Lloyd Garrison, Arthur and Lewis Tappan, and others formed the American Anti-Slavery Society in Philadelphia. The group issued this manifesto announcing the reasons for formation of the society and enumerating its goals. The broadside includes the names of delegates from ten states, to the Anti-Slavery Convention.
