AMERICAN EXPERIENCE will be celebrating the 150th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation in 2013 with the broadcast premiere of The Abolitionists on PBS. The three-part docudrama tells the story of how Frederick Douglass, William Lloyd Garrison and their abolitionist allies Harriet Beecher Stowe, John Brown and Angelina Grimké turned a despised fringe movement against chattel slavery into a force that literally changed the nation. Watch this short preview and check back with us in a couple of months for airdates - we will announce the broadcast schedule for the 2013 season soon!
Lauren Noyes is the Production Assistant for American Experience.
