The Slave's Cause
Manisha Sinha talked about her book The Slave’s Cause: A History of Abolition, in which she contends that the common profile of the abolitionist population, mainly white and middle and upper-class, was wrong. Instead, the author reports that a large contingent of white and black, free and enslaved, people not only championed abolition but also feminism, labor rights, and anti-imperialism. close
