The Rescue Of Jane Johnson And Her
Photograph - Photograph
A prominent African-American abolitionist, William Still published this image of Jane Johnson and her children in his 1872 account of the incident. In 1855 Still and others had conspired to protect Johnson, igniting a sensational trial that captured the dilemma of being a slave in free Pennsylvania on the eve of the Civil War. William Still is pictured in a tall top hat at the center of the image, escorting Johnson and her children off the ferry in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Wearing a beard and traditional Quaker garb, Passmore Williamson restrains John Wheeler, who is shown from the back, his face in shadow, his hands grasping for his former slaves.
