Abolitionist Beriah Green


Beriah Green (1795-1874), theologian, educator, and reformer was a radical abolitionist at a time when the voices for freedom in America were few in number. From 1833 to 1845, he fostered an experiment in practical abolitionism at the Oneida Institute, Whitesboro, New York. Green embraced an educational and social vision that went beyond the mere ending of slavery and embodied equal opportunity for all.  Green was a charter member of the American Anti-Slavery Society, the New York Anti-Slavery Society, and the Liberty Party.
