Profile of William Wilberforce

I found an interesting profile about William Wilberforce on The Times website if anyone is interested finding out more about one of the key players in the abolition of slavery. I like the fact that it does not shy away from detailing his less heroic characteristics as well as his campaign against slavery.

Incidentally The Times website have an entire section on Slavery with articles and other interesting profiles if you are interested.

Blimey - he was short! Not much taller than me!

The BBC also has a great website about Abolition:

Including lots of information on the unsung heroes of the abolition movement, including figures like Oludah Equiano and Leicester's very own Elizabeth Heyrick.
