The abolition of slavery:  The abolition of slavery Slide2:  In 1833 the British Government abolished the slave trade in the British Empire. This was done for a number of reasons. As with all history you can’t explain it simply by giving one factor or cause. To explain the abolition of the slave trade you need to look at a number of factors and show how they are connected. The Society for the Abolition of the Slave Trade was set up in England in 1787. William Wilberforce was an MP and member of The Society for the Abolition of the Slave Trade. Large public meetings were held all over Britain against the slave trade. Men such as Wilberforce spoke to the crowds. Slide3:  The Society for the Abolition of the Slave Trade was set up in England in 1787. William Wilberforce was an MP and member of The Society for the Abolition of the Slave Trade. Large public meetings were held all over Britain against the slave trade. Men such as Wilberforce spoke to the crowds. How can these three causes be linked together to explain the abolition of the slave trade? Slide4:  Here are three new cause cards from your pack. Try to link them together to explain another reason why the slave trade was abolished. Be ready to explain your links to the whole class! A rebellion by slaves on the French controlled island of St Dominique in1791 succeeded in ending slavery on the island. News of the successful slave revolt in St Dominique encouraged slaves on other islands to rebel against their masters. Between 1655 and 1813 there were 16 serious slave rebellions on the British controlled island of Jamaica. Slide5:  Between 1655 and 1813 there were 16 serious slave rebellions on the British controlled island of Jamaica. A rebellion by slaves on the French controlled island of St Dominique in1791 succeeded in ending slavery on the island. News of the successful slave revolt in St Dominique encouraged slaves on other islands to rebel against their masters. How can these three causes be linked together to explain the abolition of the slave trade? Slide6:  NOW FIND AS MANY LINKED CARDS AS YOU CAN TO CREATE YOUR OWN EXPLANATION OF WHY THE SLAVE TRADE WAS ABOLISHED IN BRITAIN IN 1833! Granville Sharp stopped slave owners from taking slaves back to the West Indies from England. The Society for the Abolition of the Slave Trade was set up in England in 1787. Many slave owners in the West Indies found it cheaper to free their own slaves and pay them wages to work in the fields. Granville Sharp stopped slave owners from taking slaves back to the West Indies from England. Christian groups in Britain, such as the Quakers, thought that slavery was a sin against God and religion. William Wilberforce was an MP and member of The Society for the Abolition of the Slave Trade. Large public meetings were held all over Britain against the slave trade. Men such as Wilberforce spoke to the crowds. Thomas Clarkson collected evidence on the slave trade and interviewed thousands of slave ship sailors. Petitions were collected against slavery. In Manchester 10,000 people signed in 1788 and 20,000 signed in 1792. 1,500,000 people signed a petition demanding the abolition of slavery that was organised in 1814. Black slaves in Britain went to court to get their freedom. By the early 1800s most judges set the slaves free. There were 10,000 black people living in Britain in 1800. Many of these were educated ex-slaves. One ex-slave, Olaudah Equiano, wrote a book of the story of his life. Lots of British people read the book and started to oppose slavery. Olaudah Equiano worked closely with men like Granville Sharp. He spoke at many of the public meetings held to demand an end to slavery In 1783 the owners of the slave ship “Zong” were put on trial for throwing living slaves overboard in an attempt to cheat their insurers out of money. Between 1655 and 1813 there were 16 serious slave rebellions on the British controlled island of Jamaica. A rebellion by slaves on the French controlled island of St Dominique in1791 succeeded in ending slavery on the island. News of the successful slave revolt in St Dominique encouraged slaves on other islands to rebel against their masters. Sugar from the West Indies was more expensive than from Brazil or Cuba by 1800. Lots of plantations in the West Indies closed down as British buyers started to buy their sugar from Brazil and Cuba. Imports of slaves to Barbados fell from 2,728 in 1771 to zero in 1772.
