Ellen Garrison, the daughter and granddaughter of men who had been enslaved, spent her life educating newly freed people and fighting for their civil rights. Born and raised in Con- cord’s Robbins House, she followed in her mother and sister’s footsteps as an antislavery activist. After the Civil War, Ellen taught newly freed people in the South during Reconstruction and tested the nation’s first Civil Rights Act in court after she was prevented by authorities from desegregating a train station waiting room in Baltimore.
