Slavery and the Quaker Abolition Movement in New Jersey

This presentation is an overview of the history and legacy of New Jersey’s two-hundred-year embrace of human bondage. New Jersey, sadly, was the last northern state to outlaw slavery (in 1866).  Images and stories of the enslaved, Monmouth County slave owners, and the local Quaker Abolition movement are examined and illuminated by the influential early activities at the Shrewsbury Meeting, the Manasquan Meeting, and other Quaker Meetings in West Jersey.

Join us at the Strauss Mansion  27 Prospect Circle Wednesday Sept. 19 at 7:30pm  Meetings are free and open to the public

Location  Strauss Mansion, 27 Prospect Circle, Atlantic Highlands
