“Religion’s Role in the Anti-Slavery Movement” (video)

Catholic News Service released this video in 2013 for the 150th Anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation, which paved the way for ending slavery in the United States. In it, you can learn a bit about how various religions were part of the movement and how it all had its roots in the Exodus story. You might share this video with young adults and have a conversation about the relationship between the Exodus story, or other biblical messages, and the movement to end slavery.
