Clip: Special | 5m 7s | Video has closed captioning.

New Jersey has a rich abolitionist past. In one town, residents literally took up arms to ward off slave catchers. In another, a major stop on the Underground Railroad is now a museum. In Newark, a family can trace its abolitionist roots to the late 1700s.
