Also trained in seamanship, Equiano was expected to assist the ship's crew in times of battle; his duty was to haul gunpowder to the gun decks. Pascal favoured Equiano and sent him to his sister-in-law in Great Britain so that he could attend school and learn to read and write. Equiano converted to Christianity and was baptised at St Margaret's, Westminsteron 9 Februarywhen he was described in the parish register as "a Black, born in Carolina, 12 years old".
They had taken an interest in him and helped him to learn English. Later, when Equiano's origins were Album) after his book was published, the Guerins testified to his lack of English when he first came to London. Robert King set Equiano to work on his shipping routes and in his stores. Equiano sold fruits, glass tumblers and other items between Georgia and the Caribbean islands. King allowed Equiano to buy his freedom, which he achieved in The merchant urged Equiano to stay on as a business partner.
However, Equiano found it dangerous and limiting to remain in the British colonies as a freedman. While loading a ship in Georgia, he was almost kidnapped back into enslavement. By aboutEquiano had gone to England.
He continued to work at sea, travelling sometimes as a deckhand based in England. Two years later, Irving recruited Equiano for a project on the Mosquito Coast in Central America, where he was to use his African background to help select slaves and manage them as labourers on sugar-cane plantations.
Irving and Equiano had a working relationship and friendship for more than a decade, but the plantation venture failed. Equiano settled in London, where in the s he became involved in the abolitionist movement. The movement to end the slave trade had been particularly strong among Quakers, but the Society for Effecting the Abolition of the Slave Trade was founded in as a non-denominational group, with Anglican members, in an attempt to influence parliament directly.
Under the Test Actonly those prepared to receive the sacrament of the Lord's Supper according to the rites of the Church of England were permitted to serve as MPs. Equiano had been influenced by George Whitefield 's evangelism. As early asEquiano informed abolitionists such as Granville Sharp about the slave trade; that year he was the first to tell Sharp about the Zong massacrewhich was being tried in London as litigation for insurance claims.
Equiano was befriended and supported by abolitionists, many of whom encouraged him to write and publish his life story. He was supported financially in this effort by philanthropic abolitionists and religious benefactors. His lectures and preparation for the book were promoted by, among others, Selina Hastings, Countess of Huntingdon.
It is one of the earliest-known examples of published writing by an African writer to be widely read in England. Byit was a best seller and had been published in Russia, Germany, Holland and the United States. It was the first influential slave narrative of what became a large literary genre. But Equiano's experience in slavery was quite different from that of most slaves; he did not participate in field work, he served his owners personally and went to sea, was taught to read and write, and worked in trading.
Equiano's personal account of slavery, his journey of advancement, and his experiences as a black immigrant caused a sensation on publication. In his account, Equiano gives details about his hometown and the laws and customs of the Eboe people. After being captured as a boy, he described communities he passed through as a captive on his way to the coast. His biography details his voyage on a slave ship and the brutality of slavery in the colonies of the West IndiesVirginia and Georgia.
Equiano commented on the reduced rights that freed people of colour had in these same places, and they also faced risks of kidnapping and enslavement. Equiano embraced Christianity at the age of 14 and its importance to him is a recurring theme in his autobiography. He was baptised into the Church of England in ; he described himself in his autobiography as a "protestant of the church of England" but also flirted with Methodism.
Several events in Equiano's life led him to question his faith. He was distressed in by the kidnapping of his friend, a black cook named John Annis, who was taken forcibly off the British ship Anglicania on which they were both serving. Kirkpatrick had Annis transported to Saint Kittswhere he was punished severely [ why?
With the aid of Granville SharpEquiano tried to get Annis released before he was shipped from England but was unsuccessful. He heard that Annis was not free from suffering until he died in slavery. In his account, Equiano also told of his settling in London. He married an English woman and lived with her in SohamCambridgeshirewhere they had two daughters.
He became a leading abolitionist in the s, lecturing in numerous cities against the slave trade. Equiano records his and Granville Sharp 's central roles in the anti-slave trade movement, and 4 A.M.
- Jordan Anderson - Revolution Of Roses (File effort to publicise the Zong massacrewhich became known in Reviewers Album) found that his book demonstrated the full and complex humanity of Africans as much as the inhumanity of slavery. The book was considered an exemplary work of English literature by a new African author.
Equiano did so well in sales that he achieved independence from his benefactors. He travelled throughout England, Scotland and Ireland promoting the book. He worked to improve economic, social and educational conditions in Africa. Specifically, he became involved in working in Sierra Leonea colony founded in for freed slaves by Britain in West Africa. During the American Revolutionary WarBritain had recruited blacks to fight with it by offering freedom to those who left rebel masters.
In practice, it also freed women and children, and attracted thousands of slaves to its lines in New York City, which it occupied, and in the South, where its troops occupied Charleston, South Carolina. When British troops were evacuated at the end of the war, their officers also evacuated these American slaves. Britain refused to return the slaves, which the United States sought in peace negotiations.

For much of America's history, slavery was "omnipresent, from the economy to foreign policy, from the pulpit to the halls of Congress, from westward expansion to the educational system," writes Lonnie Bunch, the director of the African-American History and Culture Museum.
Perhaps that's why, in Augusta former slaveowner named Colonel P. Anderson asked Jourdon Anderson, a free man, to return to his Tennessee farm.
The slaveowner's letter has been lost to the passage of time, writes Josh Jones for Open Culturebut Jourdon's response was published in a Cincinnati newspaper and survives to this day. Based on his sardonically civil letter, it's clear what Jourdon thought of the Colonel. But, he adds, "I have often felt uneasy about you.
