Elizabeth Freeman (c.1744 – 1829), also known as Mumbet, was one of the first enslaved African Americans to gain her freedom in Massachusetts by suing her enslavers in 1781. Her lawsuit was based on the state’s 1780 constitution which stated, "all men are born free and equal, and have . . . the right of enjoying and defending their lives and liberties." Ms. Freeman’s case, along with that of Mr. Quock Walker, led to the abolition of slavery in Massachusetts on constitutional grounds in 1783. Elizabeth Freeman went on to work for the family of her attorney, Theodore Sedgwick, was able to purchase her own house, marry, and have a family. She lived to about age 85 and is buried in the Sedgwick family plot in Stockbridge, Massachusetts. Find out more here: www.womenshistory.org/education-resources/biographies/elizabeth-freeman ...
