Wendell Phillips (1811-1884) was an American abolitionist, advocate for Native Americans, orator, and attorney. According to George Lewis Ruffin, a Black attorney, Phillips was seen by many Blacks as "the one white American wholly color-blind and free from race prejudice".


The extraordinary life and times of advocate and agitator Wendell Phillips is vividly represented in this comprehensive biography. Tracing Phillips’s beginnings in Boston, Russell details the work of the “Soldier of the Common Good” as an abolitionist, his later efforts on behalf of freed slaves, and his advocacy for Native Americans.


Charles Edward Russell (1860-1941) was an American journalist, biographer, politician, and activist. He was a Socialist Party leader and one of the founders of the NAACP.
