What was the role of Quakers in slavery

Tonight we would like to share research into the role Quakers played in shaping modern day slavery as we see it today. It is important in the regard that when most people think of slavery and Quakers, they are mostly credited with providing stops along the Underground Railroad and using jury nullification to find people charged under the Fugitive Slave Act of 1850 innocent of crimes for helping enslaved Africans find freedom.

 We will also share modern slavery related headlines whether is has to do with prison slave labor, slave catchers (cops) and things happening on the prison plantation. Our modern underground railroad system segment will feature Jefferey Deskovic and William Lopez. Our abolitionist in profile is Gerrit Smith
