PamphletDoes Slavery Christianize the Negro? Higginson, Thomas Wenthworth. American Anti-Slavery Society. Anti-Slavery Tracts No. 4, circa 1855.New York: American Anti-Slavery Society. Anti-Slavery Tracts No. 4, circa 1855. in original wrappers, 8 pages. 4.75" x 7.5" inches. Higginson was a Unitarian minister and dedicated abolitionist. The text in this tract was originally delivered as a sermon in Worcester, Massachusetts in June, 1854. Supported by repots from Southern ministers, Higginson argues in this Antislavery pamphlet, that despite slaveowners' claims of benevolence and the alleged civilizing, moral influence of slavery upon the enslaved, slaves in the US in fact receive no sound religious instruction from their masters and exist in a state of "moral degradation" and are "the heathen of this Christian country." Spot of foxing on front cover, light handling wear but very good condition overall.
