Black History Month: Jessie Donaldson Swansea Abolitionist

Wednesday 20 October 2021

Professor Jen Wilson, the Founder of Jazz Heritage Wales presents about Jessie Donaldson, Swansea Abolitionist, and the Cincinnati Trail.


Jessie Donaldson, a teacher at a school in Wind Street, Swansea, was an active anti-slavery campaigner during the 19th Century. At the time, Swansea had one of the largest and most active abolitionist campaigns in Wales but Jessie would go one step further than campaigning from thousands of miles away.
