This bundle contains a series of seven biographies on individuals associated with the abolitionist movement in the United States during the 19th century.
The biographies can be either printed directly OR converted to digital activities using Google Slides.
The first biography focuses on the abolitionist and author Harriet Beecher Stowe, whose novel Uncle Tom's Cabin showed Northerners the brutal realities of slavery and convinced many to adopt a position against the expansion of that "peculiar" institution.
The second biography focuses on William Lloyd Garrison, emphasizing his membership in the American Colonization Society, his creation of the abolitionist newspaper The Liberator, and his initial opposition to the policies of Abraham Lincoln.
The third biography focuses on Sojourner Truth focuses and her escape from slavery in New York, her attendance at the 1851 Ohio Women's Rights Convention, and her widely-recognized speech, "Ain't I a Woman?"
The fourth biography focuses on John Brown and his role in both the attack on the pro-slavery settlement at Pottawatomie Creek, Kansas, in 1856 and the raid on the federal arsenal at Harper's Ferry, Virginia, in October 1859. Brown's goal was to inspire a slave rebellion throughout the South. The raid on Harper's Ferry failed and Brown was executed. His actions, while not causing the Civil War, brought open conflict between the North and South ever closer.
The fifth biography focuses on Harriet Tubman, emphasizing her role as a "conductor" along the Underground Railroad and her involvement in the women's suffrage movement.
The sixth biography focuses on Frederick Douglass and his escape from slavery in Maryland, his support for women's suffrage, and his prominent role in both the abolitionist movement and full equality for African Americans in the years after the Civil War.
