From the horror of slavery incredible strength has been born. A unique collection from The Amazing People Club® reveals the great strength of character that propelled people to fight for their human rights.

Frederick Douglass said that “The soul that is within me no man can degrade.” Discover how he escaped from slavery to become the leader of the abolitionist movement, gaining recognition for his dazzling oratory and incisive antislavery writing. Find out about the life of Harriet Tubman, who suffered horrific abuse whilst in slavery, until she escaped and set about rescuing more than 70 slaves using an antislavery activist network known as the Underground Railroad. Meet Sojourner Truth as she tells you about how being born into slavery molded her into a powerful abolitionist who was brave enough to speak out against slavery and for women’s rights. Did you know that Sojourner Truth could not read or write but still managed to produce and sell her autobiography? Find out why she changed her name to Sojourner Truth once New York State abolished slavery, and how she pledged to “travel up and down the land” in her quest to support women’s and black people’s rights. The equally inspirational stories of Zumbi Dos Palmares, who played a pivotal role in Brazilian history and Sally Hemmings, who was born into slavery and became Thomas Jefferson’s mistress. 

Celebrate the lives of these amazing people through BioViews®, which are short biographical narratives that are similar to interviews. These inspirational stories from The Amazing People Club® provide a new way of learning about amazing people who made major contributions and changed our world.
