Leading scholars will discuss the abolitionist movement in nineteenth-century Massachusetts as an extensive integrated network that included free blacks, former slaves, white politicians, writers, artists, lawyers, ministers, and singers. Together these reformers sought to end slavery and realize America’s founding ideals.
