    Audio Book Henry Bibb,  Part 2 self-liberated  newspaper founder, The Voice!

    Author and Newspaper Owner, Henry Bibb a self-liberated black man gained his freedom in 1837. However he returned to Kentucky to try and rescue his wife and daughter. On the first attempt, he was recaptured and his whole family was sold south to a Mississippi plantation owner.  

    They escaped together, but were set upon by wolves and recaptured. Henry managed to get away again, but despite all his efforts, could not free his beloved Malinda and their little girl, Frances.
    Henry Bibb became an eloquent lecturer, author and community organizer.  http://bit.ly/HenryBibb_LoveAds

    In September 1851, as a result of the new Fugitive Slave Law, Mr. Bibb called a conference to be held in Toronto to discuss whether or not Canada was the best place for African Americans to seek freedom. 

    More than 50 delegates came to the North American Convention, also called “The Convention of Coloured Freemen.” 

    Henry and Mary also started a newspaper, The Voice of the Fugitive, in January, 1851. The Voice of the Fugitive was the first anti-slavery paper published in Canada by people of African descent. It was a very important means of communicating with Underground Railroad supporters, and with the general public. 

    Mr. Bibb's autobiography, Narrative of the Life and Adventures of Henry Bibb, An American Slave publicized the horrors of slavery. It was published in 1849 and became very popular reading, helping to further the cause of anti-slavery in North America and even in Europe.
