Reenacted live interviews with the secret six abolitionists, see Abolition News Network on youtube featuring interviews with George Luther Stearns, Gerrit Smith, Thomas Wentworth Higginson, Samuel Gridley Howe, Rev. Theodore Parker, Franklin B. Sanborn
In modern network-news style interviews, a multitude of characters from history explain their experiences, actions and perspectives during this formative period of American history.
The author, Steve Edison, has meticulously researched each character using both primary and secondary sources to bring them to life and into the classroom or living room where they can tell their stories in their own words.
Professional actors and historically suggestive sets, some filmed on location, give an authentic atmosphere to each interview. The scripts are taken from the speeches, writings and songs of the period.
Although this is not a taught course, teachers, parents and other instructors will find the supplementary information in the Teacher’s Guide an important resource. It contains additional facts, provocative questions and the series bibliography.
