Book Description:

There’s a quote by Margaret Mead: “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed, citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” One of the cases where this was proved true was in the case of slavery. Thomas Clarkson, along with people like William Wilberforce, Granville Sharp, James Edward Oglethorpe and Lord Mansfield were among that small group of people who were progressive enough in a wholly otherwise non-progressive era, to put forward the case that slavery violated the rights of men and women. This book, then, charts the process of abolition in the United Kingdom. Clarkson, in his later years, continued on with his quest; campaigning for the end to slavery worldwide.
