The British Fight Against Slavery

by ricklibrarian (WorldCat 사용자가 게시함 2005-12-29) 매우만족 퍼머링크
When twelve men, mostly Quakers, met in a print shop in London on May 22, 1787, slavery was an accepted fact of life. There had always been slavery. All the great empires had had slaves, and Great Britain was keeping a tradition. Without slaves in all of its colonies, especially in the rich sugar...

schema:description"An account of the first great human rights crusade, which originated in England in the 1780s and resulted in the freeing of hundreds of thousands of slaves around the world. In 1787, twelve men gathered in a London printing shop to pursue a seemingly impossible goal: ending slavery in the largest empire on earth. Along the way, they would pioneer most of the tools citizen activists still rely on today, from wall posters and mass mailings to boycotts and lapel pins. Within five years, more than 300,000 Britons were refusing to eat the chief slave-grown product, sugar; London's smart set was sporting antislavery badges created by Josiah Wedgwood; and the House of Commons had passed the first law banning the slave trade. The activists brought slavery in the British Empire to an end in the 1830s, long before it died in the United States."@en
