The Racial Thought of White North Carolina Opponents of Slavery, 1789-1876

Record #:
One of the best known but least demonstrative white North Carolinian with abolitionist sentimentalities was Hinton Rowan Helper. The anti-slavery movement in North Carolina has often been generalized by well-known but still racist, anti-slavery proponents who felt that all blacks were inferior to whites. The anti-slavery movement in North Carolina began with the gradual emancipationists during the 1780s-1820s which was then supplanted by the American Colonization Society and North Carolina Manumission Society during the 1820s and 1830s. No single group was dominant in the state after that period.
