The Horrors of Slavery and Other Writings by Robert Wedderburn

Robert Wedderburn was one of the first promoters of black power by revolutionary force, if necessary. His publications had an enormous impact in his time. The Horrors of Slavery is a vivid record of the history, ideas, and rhetoric of a leader in the movement to abolish slavery in the West Indies.
