With a colleague at Leeds Beckett University and a local historian the Lord Mayor of Leeds hosted us today at Leeds Civic Hall where we discussed ways to commemorate the life of abolitionist George D. Thompson.

Thompson was the amanuensis for Moses Grandy’s narrative of enslavement. Thompson’s antislavery work is important to my dissertation research.


I am very thankful for these connections made here in Leeds.

I will return!
