Remembering Those in Bonds and Bounding with Them
Born in early 1800s, John Brown was an American abolitionist that believed and advocated for overruling and abolition of slave trade in the United States of America. The American legend came into limelight in the mid-1800s when he used to paint and art to portray anti-slavery messages to the American slave traders and benefactors of the slave trade. During the early 1800s, the slave trade in America was an expanding business since slave traders of warring societies sold slaves to the USA in exchange of gold and other valuables such as guns and amination that facilitated their wars. Notably, John Brown had twenty-two silkscreen prints that consisted of deep messages that passed messages that were against the slave trade in the United States of America.
