The Jamaican Slaves Who Abolished Slavery

Tue, September 15, 2020, 7:00 PM – 7:45 PM BST

Trailblazing family historian and author Paul Crooks captivates his audience with his account of how he traced two of his African forebears. They were captured of the West Coast of Africa and enslaved on a sugar plantation in Jamaica, 200 years ago.

When researching his ancestry, Paul Crooks discovered his Great Great Great Grandfather walked free from a sugar plantation in Jamaica in 1838. Paul wanted to know what lay behind the decision to free the enslaved people of the Caribbean.

Paul will implicate his ancestors in Jamaica’s Baptist War – which ultimately brought the British system of slavery to its knees. Paul will reveal what he researched about the forgotten history of ‘The Jamaican slaves who abolished slavery’.Join us for this online evening seminar/talk.
