        Abolitionist Leader William Lloyd Garrison | The Abolitionists

        Learn about William Lloyd Garrison, one of the most prominent leaders of the abolitionist movement, in this video adapted from American Experience: “The Abolitionists.” A trained journalist with a strong sense of morality, Garrison published The Liberator and was active in the American Anti-Slavery Society in the 1830s. Garrison initially preferred moral persuasion to confrontational politics, but the strong reaction to his views and the lack of progress in ending slavery eventually led him to more public acts of resistance.
