William Lloyd Garrison - Words of Thunder

Sun. Feb. 5, 2012

August 6, 2005

This bicentennial celebration, co-presented by the Museum of Afro-American History and the Boston Public Library, includes The Massachusetts 54th Regiment and musical performances by Vivian Cooley-Collier, Guy Peartree, and the Studio Singers of the Eliot Congregational Church of Roxbury.

The "Words of Thunder" exhibitions at the Museum of Afro-American History celebrate the life, achievements, and challenges of famed Boston abolitionist William Lloyd Garrison (1805-1879) during the bicentennial of his birth. From 1831 through the Civil War, Boston was the center of the radical abolition movement in the United States. View original prints of The Liberator. Although William Lloyd Garrison was the pioneer of radical abolition, he was aided by men and women, white and black. These ambassadors of abolition sparked, supported, and sustained the anti-slavery movement.
