event Held On 17/04/2021

From the lecturing tours of Moses Roper and Frederick Douglass in the 1840s, to Jessie Donaldson’s migration from Swansea in 1854 to help set up a safe house on the ‘underground railroad’ in Ohio, there were significant and enduring connections between the transatlantic movement to abolish slavery and Welsh communities. In the sixth chapter in the Llafur Spring Series, join our guest speakers Richard Blackett, Daniel G. Williams and Jen Wilson to pick apart the relationship between the Atlantic Abolitionist Movement and the people of Wales.
