All On Fire: William Lloyd Garrison and the Abolition of Slavery | Henry Mayer


A wonderful biography of William Lloyd Garrison, editor of The Liberator, the pre-Civil War newspaper which led an impassioned campaign against slavery long before that viewpoint was popular. An inspiring story of how a small publication edited by a fearless man roused the conscience of a country.
