William Wilberforce

Tonight Ruth and I watched William Wilberforce, the soul-stirring account of his life-long struggle to end slavery. On his deathbed in 1833––three days before he died––he learned that slavery had been outlawed in the British Empire. The following year, 800,000 slaves throughout the British empire were set free.

The historian, GM Trevelyan, described it as “one of the turning points in the history of the world.”
