Female Society Abolition Slavery Birmingham Report Local Campaign
Report of the Female Society... For the relief of British Negro Slaves, a campaigning and fundraising society based in Birmingham. Their 1827 report underlines Britain's share of responsibility for the international slave trade, and calls for greater awareness of this responsibility to Africa in the UK. The report cites Giudicelly's African woman asking why Europeans do not prevent the slave trade, and comments that this "heart-searching question should be put to every inhabitant of enlightened Europe" (20).
