Publisher's Summary

Sarah Mapps Douglas was an African American lecturer, writer, and fervent abolitionist. Douglas’ address, now commonly referred to as "Sarah Mapps Douglas Urges Support for the Anti-Slavery Cause", made in 1832, is essential Civil War-era rhetoric for the abolishment of slavery. As an address, it is also extremely historically important as one of the only public speeches on the subject made by a black woman. 

This piece is a valuable experience both for its noteworthy oratory and the speech’s historical value.
