Ongoing Abolition

In 1874 Frederick Douglass claimed that ‘our work is not done.’ “Liberty,” he said, “came to the freedmen of the United States, not in mercy, but in wrath, not by moral choice, but by military necessity.” Black freedom was a legal fact, not a moral fact. Emancipation was accomplished by force, not moral conviction. The second and ongoing stage of the abolition movement must affirm cultural diversity and opportunity by moral conviction. The tones of abolition must resonate into this century as clearly as they did in the 19th and 20th centuries by Smith and his associates. Peterboro has the credentials to be the study center of this second unfulfilled stage of abolition.
