The 5 Reforms

Tray Robinson

Abolitionism

From the 1830s until 1870, the abolitionist movement attempted to achieve immediate emancipation of all slaves and the ending of racial segregation and discrimination.


Frederick Douglas was a major factor in the movement and had insight on it because he was once a slave. Nat Turner is a prominent leader among slaves and will do anything to help abolish it. William Lloyd Garrison is the head of the Abolitionist movement.
