Storyboard Text

  • Before The Slave Movement
  • I wish I wasn't a slave
  • Get to work!
  • I am going to protest slavery!
  • The Beginning of the Abolition Movemnet
  • Slavery must end!
  • Douglass Shares his Newspaper
  • Hooray
  • There was almost 4 million slaves in the United States in 1860. This represented nearly 13% of the population. Ever since the 1830's people have been trying to stop slavery. But now the movement is bigger than ever.
  • William Garrison
  • The Liberator is the Newspaper of the Future!
  • People like Frederick Douglass, who was a former slave, spread a newspaper talking about equal rights and slavery, which became popular
  • Sojourner Truth
  • Frederick Douglass wrote a newspaper called The North Star that stated his opinion on slavery and why it is wrong. Douglass was a huge impact on the movement and was very well known.
  • What the Movement Changed
  • This law will free the slaves!
  • William Lloyd Garrison published a newspaper called the Liberator in the 1830s. His newspaper called for not only an end to slavery but full equality for African Americans. The abolition movement gained public attention through Garrison's articles.
  • Sojourner Truth was a former slave. She had always been strongly spiritual and had preached throughout the North at religous meetings and on street corners. When she met Douglass and Garrison, their enthusiasm inspired her to speak out loudly about slavery. An outstanding speaker, Truth argued that God would end slavery peacefully. 
  • Abolitionists were a minority, even in the North. But their efforts, and the violence directed at them, helped change Northerners' attitudes toward slavery. And with the help of President Lincoln, in 1863 the emancipation proclamation freed 3.1 million slaves.  In addition, the antislavery fight helped pave the way for the next great reform movement: the struggle for women's rights.
