Whom or Who?

1

Here is the sentence from my essay: 

Those who opposed this belief, such as abolitionists whom/who denominated the North, were perceived by the south as acting against God.

 

I do not know if I should use whom, who or another word that would make the sentence grammarly correct.

'Who' is the correct word. It is the subject of 'dominated' and the subjective pronoun is needed.

Who is correct because you are describing a subject. Whom is when you are describing a object.
