About the Author

William Still (c.1819-1902) was an American abolitionist, writer, historian, and civil rights leader. Born in New Jersey to ex-slaves from Maryland, Still moved to Philadelphia as an adult, operating several businesses while becoming involved with the Underground Railroad. Often called "the Father of the Underground Railroad," Still helped more than sixty slaves a month escape slavery beginning in the early 1850s.
