Abolition Reading List

Abolition Reading List

I'm spending my summer enjoying the outdoors with dear friends and family.  I'm also busy working on my final paper for my Masters degree in English and Transitional Justice. 

I'm writing about the original abolition movement and their publishing tactics, exploring ways they mobilized the middle class to action.

There's so many great books and articles I'm learning from.  If you're interested in the story of ending slavery, check out I highly recommend these books.

The works I cite for the paper is much longer, but these are a great start:
