This picture below shows some African American Abolitionists such as Nat Turnar and Harriet Tubman.

[[image:Harriet.jpg]Harriet Tubman was an Abolitionist who led more than 300 people out of slavery from the Undergruond Railroad.


Nat Turner was also an Abolitionist who preached to slaves while he was working.


Abolitionism was a political movement that sought to end the practice of slavery and the worldwide slave trade. It began during the period of the Enlightenment and grew to large proportions in several nations during the 1800's, eventually succeeding in some its goals although child and adult slavery and forced labor continue to be widespread to this day.
