Moses Sheppard Quaker Abolitionist followed his cousin Elisha Tyson from Pennsylvania to Maryland who he respected and revered.
He was also head of the Maryland Colonization Society. Sheppard colonization belief was benevolent for the reasoning that Afro Americans would never be truly free unless they moved to a Free Country.
Other Colonizationists like slave owner Robert Harper wanted Free Blacks expelled from America to suppress racial mixing. Sheppard, inspired by Dorothea Dix, later founded the Sheppard Pratt Hospital.
