Abolition ! : The Struggle to Abolish Slavery in the British Colonies
Between 1562 and 1807, Great Britain transported more enslaved Africans than any other country in history. This compelling account of the transatlantic slave trade and the struggle to bring it to an end within the British colonies exemplifies all that is good and bad within human nature. Writing as an African Caribbean British subject, Reddie brings Africans very much into their own story, showing how they worked alongside their European counterparts in the battle to end slavery.
