Speaker or author: Martin, J. Sella (John Sella), b. 1832

Newspaper or publication: National Anti-Slavery Standard

The speaker noted that prejudice was related more to an association of race with slavery than to slavery itself. While slavery had included all races in its long history, it was the particular racial aspect of slavery in the U. S. that distinguished it and set it on the road to its doom. The speaker also addressed the causes for the abolition of slavery in England and the influence of the press in this action.
