  • "Tells of the last years before the Civil War. Black abolitionists like Frederick Douglass, Rev. Jermain Loguen and Sojourner Truth agitate against southern slavery and northern racism. Southern states threaten to leave the union. In 1850, a last political compromise trades away black rights to keep the nation united. As slaveholders call for reopening the slave trade, abolitionists fight back. John Brown's raid on Harper's Ferry seems the final blow."
