An ambitious exhibition of previously unseen original texts, manuscripts and artefacts which document the history of the Slave Trade and the Abolition Movement.

This exhibition includes intriguing items such as pictures of the Jamaica Mission of Reverend William Knibb (1803 – 1845); abolitionist poetry; slave ship images; and items relating to the slave rebellion of 1832. Visitors will also be encouraged to contemplate modern issues of slavery and human rights.


This exhibition on loan from the Angus Library and Archive forms part of the bicentenary celebration and will be on show at the Bicentenary Celebrations at Cannon Street and the Jamaican and British Baptists Together - a Celebration events in October.

This event forms part of the bicentenary celebration marking the relationship between the Baptist Unions of Jamaica and Great Britain, and BMS World Mission.
