Tonight's Wilberforce Address (run by CCF) was equally inspiring, talking about racism as the legacy of the Slave Trade.

The William Wilberforce Lecture by David Davis, Tuesday 17 April

25th March 2007 will mark 200 years to the day that a Parliamentary Bill was passed to abolish the slave trade. The prime mover in this was the Tory MP and Clapham resident William Wilberforce.

This parliamentary bill was the culmination of a 20 year campaign conducted from what is now the Vauxhall Constituency.

· Wilberforce and the great anti-slavery campaigners held their meetings to abolish the slave trade at Hawkstone Hall on the Kennington Road.

· Wilberforce and his fellow abolitionists in the Clapham Sect worship at Holy Trinity Church, Clapham.

· The charity Anti-Slavery international, based in Stockwell, has its roots in the first abolitionist society founded in 1787.

To mark this occasion Vauxhall Conservative Association and the Conservative History Group will be hosting The William Wilberforce Lecture given by the Rt Hon David Davis MP, Shadow Home Secretary.

The event will be held at St Paul’s Church, Rectory Grove, Clapham on 17th April. If you are interested in attending or would like to find out further information please contact: [email protected]

Wilberforce was noa a conservative. He was an independent MP. The 1807 and 1833 acts against slavery were brought in under Whig party governments. The slave trading tories never would have backed such measures.
