Another in the #blackhistory  #guestblogging
Series: Author: Hannah Rose Murray

Rising to the podium with applause ringing in his ears, Frederick Douglass addressed a large crowd of over three thousand in Paisley, 1846. He urged the people of Scotland to denounce American slavery and to reject all contact with slaveholders. Britain had a duty to destroy the evil sin of slavery, since she played a part in introducing it to the colonies in the first place. Frederick Douglass was not the first or the last fugitive slave to visit Britain during the nineteenth century, but his travels here electrified the nation. He wanted to “concentrate the moral and religious sentiment of the world against [slavery], until by the weight of its overwhelming influence, [it] be swept off the face of the earth.”
