Culture Course Film: Amazing Grace

3.30pm, at 8 Bassett Crescent East

Join Richard and Margaret at their home to watch the film, Amazing Grace, about the campaign against slave trade in the British Empire, led by William Wilberforce, who was responsible for steering anti-slave trade legislation through the British parliament. The title is a reference to the hymn “Amazing Grace”. The film also recounts the experiences of John Newton as a crewman on a slave ship and his subsequent conversion, which inspired his writing of the poem later used in the hymn.
