Nineteenth-century abolitionist, presenter, and author. He’s perhaps best kept in mind for co-writing the 1839 function American Slavery SINCE IT Can be: Testimony of one thousand Witnesses. During his period at Hamilton University, he became a follower of evangelical preacher Charles Finney. In 1833, he helped set up the Street Theological Seminary in Cincinnati, Ohio. Through the 1830s and early 1840s, he edited an abolitionist publication known as The Emancipator. He wedded women’s suffragist and fellow abolitionist Angelina Grimke in 1838. Writer Harriet Beecher Stowe centered her famous book, Uncle Tom’s Cabin, on Weld’s American Slavery SINCE IT Is.
