The 18th and 19th century movement to abolish slavery was one of the most profound causes in American history. Contrary to the official history of Abolitionism being limited to a small white, male, middle-class affair, the movement to abolish slavery encompassed slave uprisings, activism of free blacks and women, and the nascent worker's movement. This talk will make the case that socialists should study the history of slave resistance and abolition and bring these lessons into anti-racist struggle today.
