We've just added two more "pins" to The Abolitionist Map of America: information about two key abolitionist tracts: Harriet Beecher Stowe's A Key to Uncle Tom's Cabin, and American Slavery As It Is, compiled by Theodore D. Weld and Angelina and Sarah Grimke. For those of you who watched the first episode of The Abolitionists, you might recall the mention of American Slavery. You can read more about the books, including Amistad's unique copy of American Slavery at previous blog posts.
The Amistad Research Center is the nation's largest independent archives specializing in the history of African Americans and other ethnic groups. As such, the Center is dedicated to preserving America's ethnic heritage by providing a home to the manuscripts, photographs, oral histories, books, periodicals and works of art that contain the history of peoples, of nations, of beliefs and dreams, of a past worth sharing with the future.
