Axe Laid To The Root - Martin HoylesThe Story of Robert Wedderburn

One of the great campaigners against the slave trade Robert Wedderburn has to date been omitted from history books.
Now Martin Hoyles brings this mixed-race abolitionist to life in Axe Laid To The Root: The Story of Robert Wedderburn

Imprisoned by the British government for blasphemy and branded a notorious firebrand, Wedderburn campaigned vigorously for an end to slavery. Also a preacher he dared to suggest that Christians who supported or tolerated slavery were not in fact Christians at all.

Wedderburn's mother was an African slave transported to Jamaica and his father was James Wedderburn, Scottish heir to a fortune made from the very trade his son sought to destroy. The Wedderburn family in Scotland opposed the abolition of slavery and lobbied for the creation of the West India Docks to accommodate the Caribbean trade in rum and sugar.

Axe Laid To The Root is a short biography of Wedderburn's life and battle to have slavery abolished. It gives details of speeches and sermons given at Hopkins Street Chapel in London's East End where Wedderburn entertained and educated crowds of Britain's working class and slaves.
