This website was created as a tribute to American abolitionists and anti-slavery activists.
The research and the material that appears on this website is the result of an ongoing project to compile a database of individuals and organizations who were opposed to slavery. It is our hope to continue to add to this website on a regular basis.
We are a nonprofit organization and the work to produce this website has been done on a voluntary basis.
The editor is Eric Saul. Saul is a historian and museum curator, and author of several books on history. He has curated a number of exhibits on ethnic minorities in the United States, including African Americans and Japanese Americans.
