They denied that slaves were well treated or lived a life that could be compared with working-class laborers in the northern United States or in England’s industrial cities. Black abolitionists described the long hours, forced labor, poor food, rude houses, inadequate clothes, and physical abuse—the whippings, shootings, rapes, and beatings—they had experienced or witnessed.

3 America, England, Scotland, and Ireland had never before experienced such antislavery activity. Countless fugitive slaves made their way to the British Isles. Many— too numerous and too historically elusive to count accurately—engaged in some antislavery activity in England.
