Who speaks from the condition of slavery? Who hears? Who takes action—and why? This talk will examine the context and rhetoric of selected stories of enslavement to challenge our assumptions about the British Parliament’s abolition of slavery. We will look at the words of Mary Prince (The History of Mary Prince, a West Indian Slave (related by herself) 1831) and James Williams (A Narrative of Events, Since the First of August, 1834, by James Williams, an Apprenticed labourer in Jamaica,1837.
