Black and White Adopt a Book 2013 - CL 2

Black and White

The Slave’s Friend.  Vol. III. No. III. Whole No. 39. Boston: R.G. Williams for the American Anti-Slavery Society, [1838]. Catalog Record | Enlarge Image

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.
