The free African American community of Boston led the struggle against slavery and for equal rights in their city. Together with their white allies, these men and women, adults and children, were outspoken abolitionists and freedom fighters. Many were involved on the Underground Railroad, the secret system that helped enslaved people get from slavery to freedom.
