Slave trade, resistance, abolitionism
After his escape north, Henry Brown collaborated with Boston artists to create a moving panorama, The Mirror or Slavery, that he exhibited in New England and through England to explain the evils of chattel slavery. Part of his panorama may have been based on the engravings from The Nubian Slave, created by Charles C. Green and published in 1845.
