Nullify Now! presents a special tribute to human freedom with the story of Joshua Glover. Learn about resistance to slavery in one of history's greatest acts of nullification - and how it applies to events today - in Cincinnati, Ohio on March 5, 2011...

Location: The Harriet Tubman Theater at the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center
(details below)

In the 1850's, the Federal Fugitive Slave Act was passed and required northern States to send alleged runaway slaves back to the south - no questions asked. No trial, no witnesses. Nothing. Many heroic northern states resisted - so much so that when South Carolina gave its official reason for secession, the first issue named was the fact that Northern states were nullifying federal slave laws.

On March 5, 2011, Nullify Now! celebrates this brave resistance to slavery by states and individuals on the Underground Railroad through the story of Joshua Glover - one of the best stories most Americans have never heard.

Glover was a slave in Missouri who managed to escape from his master. In 1854, with the help of the Underground Railroad, he made his way north, all the way to Wisconsin. Unfortunately for Glover, his former master eventually managed to find out where he was.

Because of the Federal Fugitive Slave Act, he was thrown in jail and was to be sent back to his so-called "owner." But things didn't happen that way, and the people of Wisconsin rallied to his support in one of history's greatest examples of nullification - on March 11, 1854 - Glover was a free man!

At Nullify Now! Cincinnati, you'll learn:

  • the details of this harrowing tale of tyranny, courage, dedication...and liberty

  • how such actions provide us lessons for activism and freedom today

  • how we can roll back unconstitutional expansions of federal power through nullification

  • why the Tenth Amendment to the Constitution reserves to the states the power to nullify unconstitutional laws

  • why states – not the Supreme Court – should arbitrate disputes between the states and the federal government over the constitutionality of the federal government’s actions.

  • and much more...

The event will be held just days before the anniversary of Glover's freedom on March 5, 2011 at the Harriet Tubman Theater in the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center.
