So in the early years of the 19th century, Blacks created an organized antislavery movement. Unfortunately, this movement didn’t exactly last long and it wasn’t very effective either. But after 1830, a new leading figure emerged and his name was William Lloyd Garrison....   [tags: nation, blacks, colonization]

Referencing William Lloyd Garrison’s Fervor - The international problem of abusive labor practices, especially child labor, which is a form of modern-day slavery, violates the inalienable rights of personal freedom that William Lloyd Garrison, one of the founders of the American Anti-Slavery Society, spent his life defending. However, to evoke labor change in today’s complex international arena, we cannot simply preach North American ideals to other nations. To end abusive labor practices worldwide, we must persuade by appealing to more universal desires, including the desire for wealth, hitting foreign leaders and business owners in their wallets rather than simply their consciences....   [tags: Personal Freedom, Child Labor]

"William Lloyd Garrison: the Agitator" - Slavery has always been a controversial and debatable issue in the United States. No one attacked the African-American slavery of the southern states with greater vehemence than a group of young, radical abolitionists. Frustrated at the betrayal of the revolutionary promise that all forms of bondage would disappear in the new land and marshalling all the religious revivals that swept the country, abolitionists demanded no less than the immediate emancipation of all slaves. Bursting upon the American political system in the early 1830s, abolitionists not only opposed any reparation of slaveholders, but they also demanded full political rights for all African-Americans, North and South....   [tags: American History] 1321 words
