Child's First Anti-Slavery Primer

This is an incredible piece of business. I can imagine these 18th century women making up rhymes to teach the evils of slavery to children. That is hardcore self publishing and really fighting an uphill battle in education for that time - especially in the Southern states. But for the few kids it DID reach, how did they affect change in their own world? Amazing stuff.  Follow the link to see the entire alphabet.

Wow. Abolitionists fought a thankless battle for many decades until change came.
