About the Exhibit

This epic exhibition takes a detailed look at “abolitionist art.” Studies of the Abolition movement in America and Great Britain look primarily at the political and economic efforts of the abolitionists and enslaved persons. However, much more intimate efforts were made to promote abolitionist ideas through artistic and cultural means. This exhibit gathers a wide variety an anti-slavery artwork, poetry, music, and pamphlets that helped spread the cause in the nineteenth century.
