Now Online: Ending Slavery: An unfinished business
The Citizenship Foundation has produced a free on-line resource, to tie in with the 200th anniversary on 25 March 2007, of the Act of Parliament which abolished the transatlantic slave trade in the former British Empire.
Don Rowe, Director of Curriculum Resources said “The anti-slavery movement was the first major campaign in Britain to involve ordinary citizens across all classes (as well as the slaves themselves) in the struggle to end an evil practice. As such it is a good example of how change can come about when people work together for a just cause. The materials have a strong citizenship orientation and focus on the way individuals, small groups and large groups can take action to bring about change.”
