The Boston Way
A group of Boston abolitionists from 1820 to the Civil War passionately believe in non-violence. To use violence, such as a Civil War, to emancipate the slaves would fail to get black people their rights because it would not change the thinking of the slave owners. They predicted that it would take 100 years for Blacks to get their rights after a Civil War which has proven optimistic. With their nonviolent tactics such as restaurant boycotts, train sit-ins, marches and freedom songs, they laid the groundwork for the modern civil rights movement. Published by Godine in 2024-5.
