    in Education

In she started a newspaper called The Provincial Freemen, a weekly publication for African Americans, to assist self liberated black people and to promote information about the successes of Black people living in Canada.   When the Civil War broke out, Mary Ann Shadd Cary returned to the United States to help in the war effort. 


    Shadd moved to Washington, DC, where she taught, then pursued law studies and became the first Black woman to complete this degree at Howard University. Shadd fought for many causes, including women’s right to vote. 


    In addition Shadd testified before the Judiciary Committee of the House of Representatives along with women’s rights activists Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony.

    A Black teacher and journalist, Mary Ann Shadd, was the first Black woman in North America to publish a newspaper and the first woman to study for a law degree at an American university. 


    Mary Ann Shadd was the eldest of 13 children. Her father worked for the abolitionist newspaper called the Liberator run by abolitionist William Lloyd Garrison and provided help to fugitive African Americans as a member of the Underground Railroad. Shadd Cary would grow up to follow in her father’s footsteps.


    Shadd settled in Windsor, Ontario where she wrote educational booklets outlining the advantages of Canada for settlers willing to work and the need for living within one’s means. She set up a school in Windsor for fugitives from slavery.

    Carl Bernhard Wadstrom: Swedenborgian Abolitionist


    Last week, we celebrated the movie Amazing Grace and the extraordinary life of William Wilberforce.
     
    One of the people working with Wilberforce was a Swedenborgian, Carl Bernhard Wadstrom [1746-1799].  Wadstrom is perhaps one of best known Swedenborgians involved in the British abolition movement.
     
    Wadstrom was Swedish, and the time frames of his life overlapped with Swedenborg’s life [1688- 1772]. He was impressed with Swedenborg’s references to Africans in the spiritual world, and felt that he had to take a stand against slavery.
     
    He worked with a number of people, including British Swedenborgians, to set up a colony on the coast of Sierra Leone for freed slaves.  The colony was attacked by French privateers in 1795, and most of the settlers were killed.  Unfortunately the colony eventually failed.
     
    Wilberforce called a number of witnesses in the British House of Commons in support of ending the slave trade.  One person he called on was Charles Bernhard Wadstrom.

    Harriet Tubman on a $20 Bill: Will It Teach Children The Truth About Slavery?

    in Women

    The nation is all abuzz about President Obama's decision to put a black face on a $20 bill - the legendary liberator of slaves, Harriet Tubman, known in her time as Moses, who freed hundreds of slaves and said she would have freed thousands more "If they had only known they were slaves." Of course a dollar bill is only a symbol, but what a powerful symbol it is to have an African American woman so honored to be placed on a symbol of currency that, up to this point in time, has been reserved exclusively for "dead Presidents." Will this new bill force more discussion about slavery and  what extreme measures it took to finally abolish it? How will those in Confederate states respond to this decision? Is this one of those memorable actions that will characterize President Obama's legacy as the first African American U. S. President? How can we make this $20 bill a teaching tool to enable white and black children to understand the depth of degradation slavery represented and the tremendous sacrifice and courage it took for Harriet Tubman to resist not only enslavement of herself, but the many men women and children she helped escape to freedom? Can the placement of Harriet Tubman on a $20 bill be an emotionally healing act for African Americans? Historian and Linguist Hussain Abdul Quddus, who performs on stage in a portrayal of abolitionist Frederick Douglas, joins us to look at the impact of this new $20 bill.
