Garrison in defense of Prudence Crandall

SAVAGE BARBARITY ! Miss Crandall Imprisoned !!!
Garrison has strong condemnation of those who imprison Crandall because she has admitted black female students to her Academy. “The authors of this infamous proceeding”, he admonishes. “They are friends of the American Colonization Society, and have made their appeal to that association for countenance and support! We verily believe, that these proceedings are the genuine fruits of colonization principles and prejudices, and we trust, that they will open the eyes of a slumbering and credulous community”. (Liberator, July 6, 1833)
