This presentation is an overview of the history and legacy of New Jersey’s two-hundred-year
embrace of human bondage. New Jersey, sadly, was the last northern state to outlaw slavery
(1866). Images and stories of the enslaved, slave owners, and the local Quaker Abolition
movement are examined and illuminated by the influential early activities at the Shrewsbury
Meeting, the Manasquan Meeting, and other Quaker Meetings in West Jersey.
