    (December 12, 1805-May 24, 1879)
    One of the most radical abolitionists in America
    Editor of ‘The Liberator,’ an anti-slavery newspaper
    Co-founder of the American Anti-Slavery Society
    He publicly burned the Constitution on several occasions, believing it to be a racist document.
    His cranky demeanor alienated many other abolitionists, including Frederick Douglass.
    He attacked Abraham Lincoln, saying he had ‘not a drop of anti-slavery blood in his veins.’
    He said that the North should immediately secede from the South if all slaves were not freed.
    Despite his endorsement of peaceful protest, he regarded John Brown as a hero.
    Thinking slavery was too embedded in the system, he called upon all abolitionists to never vote.
    He joined strange spiritualist circles to try and talk to his dead wife.
    He worked himself out of poverty.
    He was one of the most prominent abolitionists of his time, demanding total and immediate emancipation.
    He was fined, imprisoned, and nearly lynched during his crusade.
    After the Civil War, he became involved with the women’s suffrage movement.
    He dedicated his entire life towards the campaigning for equal rights and freedom.
    He said: 'My country is the world; my countrymen are all mankind.'
