Anti-Slavery International

England, Great Britain, UK, UNITED KINGDOM

An image of kneeling slave in chains inscribed with the words, 'Am I not a man and a brother?' The kneeling slave was a recognisable symbol of the 18th century abolitionist movement. This photograph (Neg. 67) forms part of the Harris lantern slide collection and was used in the Harris lecture no. 1. The photographs of Alice Seeley Harris and her husband John Harris constituted part of what was probably the first orchestrated multimedia campaign against widespread human rights abuses.
