Although AAS has an extensive collection of this juvenile anti-slavery periodical, this issue is new to the AAS collection. Published between 1836 and 1839, the pocket-sized Slave’s Friend used stories, poetry, and pictures to press its message to the children of America. This innocent picture of a little white girl with white and black lambs is used to illustrate a father telling his children that all Christians are the sheep of the Good Shepherd, regardless of color.
