Pennsylvania Abolition Society Founded Timelines: Setting the Stage for Catto’s Life

Pennsylvania Abolition Society established by Anthony Benezet, an advocate and educator for blacks both male and females. Absalom Jones (St. Thomas Church) and Richard Allen (Mother Bethel) were among his students. In 1790 the Society submitted a petition to the first U.S. Congress, under Benjamin Franklin’s signature, to end slavery.
