A leader of the free black community in Philadelphia, Allen also served as one of the spokesmen for the forces opposed to the American Colonization Society, an organization that proposed sending freedmen back to Africa. His campaign against the colonizationists resulted in the first meeting of the National Negro Convention Movement in 1830 -- a loosely organized group that functioned as a public platform for black abolitionists and community leaders.
