Spotlight: The Liberator — Boston, Suffolk Co, MA

The Liberator
 
Boston's uncompromising anti-slavery paper The Liberator was founded on this site in 1831 by William Lloyd Garrison (1805-1879), a leader of the abolition movement in Boston.

The Liberator was the voice of Boston's racially integrated anti-slavery community. It became the most influential abolitionist paper in America; contributors included Charles Sumner and Frederick Douglass. The journal moved to Cornhill in 1834; the building burned in the Great Fire of 1872.
