Riassunto: Gerrit Smith may have been the least-known national leader of the American 19th century. A multi-billionaire by today s standards, he chose to live in a small, rural hamlet in Central New York state.
His reach was long: he was a champion for women s rights, temperance, and most notably, the fight to end slavery and racial discrimination. The long list of visitors to his home in tiny Peterboro, New York included Frederick Douglass, Harriet Tubman, John Brown, Susan B. Anthony, William Lloyd Garrison, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, and Sojourner Truth.
In this landmark biography that is destined to become a favorite of researchers and historians, Norman Dann paints a vibrant portrait of Smith based on thousands of letters, poems, and speeches Smith gave to and received from those he worked with and against in his lifelong crusade for freedom and equality.
L'autore: Norman K. Dann was born in Providence, RI in 1940. After high school, he spent three years in the U.S. Navy as an aviation electronics technician.
He earned a B.A. degree in psychology from Alderson-Broaddus College in Philippi, WV and an M.A. in Political Science at the University of Rhode Island. He was graduated from Syracuse University in 1974 with a Ph.D. in Interdisciplinary Social Sciences.
He taught for 33 years on the faculty of the Social Sciences Department at Morrisville State College in Central New York.
In retirement, Norm has specialized in research and writing on the abolition movement, with several articles and book reviews for publication. His first book, When We Get to Heaven: Runaway Slaves On the Road to Peterboro, was published in 2008. Norm has dedicated his retirement to sharing the story of local history regarding abolition. He is a member of the Peterboro-based Smithfield Community Association and helps manage the group s annual fund-raiser, Civil War Weekend. He is a founding member of the National Abolition Hall of Fame & Museum and serves on its Cabinet of Freedom.
