EBB Published in America

In December of 1847, EBB's "The Runaway Slave at Pilgrim's Point," a poem also calling for social justice, was published in The Liberty Bell in Boston, Massachusetts. The Liberty Bell was sold by the Boston Female Anti-Slavery Society to raise money for abolitionist causes, and EBB was invited to contribute partly because of the reputation for bold protest that she had attained through "Cry of the Children."  Just as "The Cry of the Children" influenced British society and law in regards to child labor, "The Runaway Slave at Pilgirm's Point" combatted slavery. EBB later made this connection by publishing "The Cry of the Children" next to "The Runaway Slave at Pilgrim's Point" in the 1850 edition of her collected Poems.
