American Experience: The Abolitionists

Production of a multiplatform project on the abolitionists, the determined activists who sought the immediate end of slavery in the decades leading up to the Civil War.

This is a request to the National Endowment for the Humanities for a production grant to support an ambitious multi-platform project on the abolitionists, the determined activists who militated for the immediate end of slavery in the decades leading up to the Civil War. The centerpiece of the project is a special two-part mini-series produced for AMERICAN EXPERIENCE by noted documentary producer Barak Goodman, with a national PBS broadcast scheduled to coincide with the 150th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation in 2013.
