Session for Schools: Help Equiano End Slavery

18th century writer and abolitionist Olaudah Equiano (George Eggay) invites students and teachers to take part in one of The National Archives sessions for schools.

Delivered as a taught session here at Kew or by videoconference, students will work with original documents to find evidence that will support Equiano’s arguments for the abolition of slavery in Britain’s colonies.
