Black History | The Last Stand of The Baptists who Ended Slavery

Recognising that every age rewrites history, particularly black history, Paul will place into historical perspective the factors that contributed to ending transatlantic slavery. Drawing accounts of eyewitness accounts, audiences will gain an appreciation of how Sam Sharpe’s Baptist war heralded a new era in the continuing push for racial justice and equality.

Paul will implicate his ancestors in the ultimate push for racial justice and equality. He will also discuss the positive impact the Baptist War had on the British government's decision to pass legislation to end enslavement.
