Nathaniel Jocelyn, 1833: William Lloyd Garrison. His newspaper The Liberator became the dominant voice in the U.S. anti-slavery movement, demanding emancipation without payment to slave owners. In 1835 he was jailed to keep an angry mob from attacking him. But he kept publishing until Emancipation and the end of the Civil War; he later became a prominent supporter of women’s suffrage.
