The Abolitionists Film overview: The Abolitionists vividly brings to life the struggles of the men and women who led the battle to end slavery. Through innovative use of reenactments, this three-episode series puts a face on the anti-slavery movementor rather, five faces: impassioned New England newspaper editor William Lloyd Garrison; former slave, author, and activist Frederick Douglass; Angelina Grimké, daughter of a rich South Carolina slaveholder; Harriet Beecher Stowe, author of the enormously influential Uncle Toms Cabin; and John Brown, ultimately executed for his armed seizure of the federal arsenal at Harpers Ferry. The films release in 2013 also marked the 150th anniversary year of the Emancipation Proclamation.
