About the Project
The American Anti-Slavery Society (1833–1870) was an abolitionist society founded by William Lloyd Garrison and Arthur Tappan. Frederick Douglass was a key leader of the society and often spoke at its meetings. By 1838, the society had 1,350 local chapters with around 250,000 members. The American Anti-Slavery Almanac was published yearly starting in 1836 to raise awareness about slavery and included calendars and astronomical data, anti-slavery literature, art, and advertisements.
