Helper, Hinton Rowan


Helper, Hinton Rowan
(27 dic. 1829, cond. de Davie, N.C., EE.UU.–9 mar. 1909, Washington, D.C.).

Escritor estadounidense antiesclavista. En su obra The Impending Crisis of the South [La crisis inminente del Sur], escrita en 1857, sostuvo que la esclavitud perjudicaba a los blancos que no eran dueños de esclavos e inhibía el progreso económico en el Sur. En el Norte, el libro influyó en el movimiento antiesclavista; en el Sur, causó furor y varios estados lo prohibieron. Se trasladó a Nueva York por su seguridad. Después de la guerra de Secesión, escribió tres folletos racistas mordaces, en los que abogaba por deportar a los negros a África o a América latina.
