Publisher's Summary

This sobering pamphlet was written in 1788 by an ex-slave ship captain turned clergyman. Famous for writing the hymn "Amazing Grace", John Newton wrote passionately about his memories of the slave trade. His pamphlet helped sway the English Parliament to outlaw this hideous trade. This is a crucial piece of primary historical evidence about the history of a vile blot on Europe's and America's history.

First Person Story

This book is a short, first person story on the authors perspective of the African slave trade. He talks about multiple perspectives of the Slave trade including capture, life onboard a slave ship and arrival in the “West Indies”. Some of the stories are very disturbing and lead you to wonder how slave traders could lose their humanity by participating in this tragedy.
