When it comes to non-blacks who have contributed greatly to the African-American struggle for freedom and equality, the contributions of abolitionists William Lloyd Garrison, John Brown, Harriet Beecher Stowe and Levi Coffin, sometimes called “the president of the Underground Railroad”, are often recognized. Last year, the nation revisited Abraham Lincoln’s legacy during the bicentennial celebration of his birth. Still, there were others from that era and beyond who were no less dedicated but remain largely unacknowledged. Many of them are found here.
