PBS Film Highlights Abolitionists

PBS’s film series The Abolitionists follows anti-slavery activists  Frederick Douglass, William Lloyd Garrison, Harriet Beecher Stowe, John Brown and Angelina Grimké as they “turn a despised fringe movement against chattel slavery into a force that literally changed the nation.”  The third and final installment of the series airs January 22, but each film is available online via PBS’s website.
