London Presentation: Black British Freedom Fighter of the 1780s: Equiano

Greetings, all. 

Olaudah Equiano was a free African man who lived in London in the 1780s. He was part of group of free Black men called the Sons of Africa who campaigned against slavery. On 29 April 1789, he published his amazing life story which doubled as a critique of slavery. It became an international bestseller. He then travelled the UK giving lectures on the evils of history.

His story reveals the truth about the evils of Transatlantic slavery and the differences between slavery in Africa and Transatlantic chattel slavery. Equiano was a renowned abolitionist anti-slavery campaigner.

African people fought for their freedom for hundreds of years - in Africa, in Europe, on the open seas, in the Caribbean and in the United States.  For more about this, see:  African People's Self-Liberation.  

For details of the Equiano event on Friday 30th May and to book, see:  London Black History Walks.  

With best wishes,
