Resistance and Abolition Part of an excellent new Black History series from a British author, this title follows on from the volume 'Africa and the Slave Trade' to tell the story of the many forms of resistance, both in Africa and in the Americas that helped to bring about the abolition of slavery. It tells the inspiring stories of rebel leaders such as Nanny of the Maroons and Toussaint L'Ouverture, recounts key events such as the Amistad uprising, and profiles campaigners such as Olaudah Equiano, William Wilberforce and Elizabeth Heyrick and their leadership of the abolitionist movement in this country. The format is one of short chapters with a variety of texts, personal testimonies and visual materials with many references to British history, and concluding with a glossary, bibliography and list of websites for further research.
