Pictures in Robert's Office
In thankful remembrance
In 1785 the divinity called him to stand up against injustice.
It changed his life completely.
On May 12, 1789 he held his speech in the British Parliament,
in which he described in detail the horrible conditions
in which slaves travelled from Africa.
On March 25, 1807 the result of his continous campaign against slavery
was the complete abolition of slave trade.
But he did not give up and worked on against injustice.
In August 1833 one month after his death
all British slaves got their freedom.
He did succeed.
His birthday is August 24, 1759.
