Wendell Phillips Facts

Wendell Phillips was an American abolitionist, advocate for Native Americans, orator and lawyer. Phillips was also an early advocate of women’s rights. Phillips's philosophical ideal was mainly self-control of the animal, physical self by the human, rational mind, although he admired rash activists like Elijah Lovejoy and John Brown. Phillips was also active in efforts to gain equal rights for Native Americans, arguing that the 14th Amendment also granted citizenship to Indians. (1811 – 1884)
