Abolition's Axe
Beriah Green, Oneida Institute, and the Black Freedom Struggle

Milton C. Sernett

Paper $19.95s    |    0-8156-3022-0    |   2004

Chronicling the career of Beriah Green (1795-1874), theologian, educator, reformer, and one of New York's most important abolitionists, this book is the first published history of Green and his attempt to create a model biracial society.

"Sernett's book insures that no one can ignore Beriah Green when considering great figures in the history of American reform and black education."
dashReligious Studies Review

"An important contribution to the study of the abolitionist movement as well as to the history of education."
dashHistory of Education Quarterly

"Milton Sernett captures the forceful image of Green and paints a very strong revealing portrait of a man of great moral intensity, a minister who had little inclination to pastor but a great burning need to instruct and reform those about him."
dashEducation Studies
