DescriptionAbolitionism: It all started with Anthony Benezet, a school teacher and antislavery activist who was a leading Quaker voice for reform in 18th century Philadelphia. His antislavery ideas had a major influence on late 18th century Quaker communities in North America and on activists on both sides of the Atlantic. Benezet is considered the Father of Atlantic Abolitionism. 2013 marks the 300th anniversary of Benezet's birth and the 150th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation. Free and open to the public.
