They made speeches and they tried to convince people that slavery is not a normal thing. For instance, Frederick Douglass in his speech “What to the Slave Is the Fourth of July?” tried to prove that white people and the black nation are equal. He gave examples that among African- Americans, people created their own societies, had normal jobs, they started their families, brought up children and they have their own language. They used newspapers and books as well. They wanted to show their ideas to the northern states.
At 10 years old, he began selling newspapers on downtown street corners. When he turned 11, he found a job that allowed him to set pins at a downtown bowling alley. When he turned 12, he convinced himself that it was time for a real job. Desperately, Dr. Anderson went door to door to every merchant in the downtown of South Blend, Indiana asking for a job. To his luck, an owner of a local typewriter company by the name of Marion Forbes hired him.

The Abolitionist By Deonte Archie 10/28/17 The time had come for the abolishment of the era of slavery. Those that were were ready for a change and willing to speak out were growing. One such person was Josiah Wedge who made a medallion that represented the Abolitionist slave. The Medallion contained a picture of a slave asking a question "Am i not a man and a brother?" Which mean 's isn 't he a man and a brother just like the white people so why can 't he be treated like everybody else?
The original minstrel performances were used as an outlet for “working class white youth” to express “their own sense of marginalization through identification with African-American culture forms” (Starr & Waterman, 46). Even when Thomas Dartmouth Rice’s song Jim Crow became popular in 1829, it was still being used as a way to make fun of the upper classes. It wasn’t until entrepreneurs and promoters got ahold of it in the 1840s that it became the hateful show we know it as today.

In his 1852 speech “What to the Slave is the Fourth of July?”, Frederick Douglass voices an authentic critique on the “peculiar institution” of American slavery. In a constructive yet patriotic tone, he argues for the end of slavery through his understanding of reason and the revolutionary ideals which America was founded upon.

As historical documents, the slave narrative serves as a lens to the evolution of white supremacy in the South in the eighteenth century through the twentieth century Jim Crow South to the disfranchisement of Blacks today. These narratives give voice to the generations of Blacks who may not have had their stories told because any evidence of what occurred was destroyed or was told from the oppressor’s perspective. In William Wells Brown’s Clotel; or, The President’s Daughter: Narrative of a Slave Life (1853), the author shows the dilemma of the African American through the mulatto character. Brown’s narrative acts like an instrument to project the propaganda of the abolitionist by disclosing the brutal institution of slavery. The narrative develops around explicitly, powerful scenes that show the many experiences of the mulatto in the antebellum era through the social constraints that bind her.
