AMERICAN EXPERIENCE The Abolitionists – Coming in 2013

AMERICAN EXPERIENCE will be celebrating the 150th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation in January 2013 with the broadcast premiere of “The Abolitionists” on PBS. The three-part docudrama tells the story of how Frederick Douglass, William Lloyd Garrison and their abolitionist allies Harriet Beecher Stowe, John Brown and Angelina Grimke turned a despised fringe movement against chattel slavery into a force that changed the nation.
