John Newton – Thoughts upon the African Slave Trade


This sobering pamphlet was written in 1788 by an ex-slave ship captain turned clergyman. Famous for writing the hymn “Amazing Grace”, John Newton wrote passionately about his memories of the slave trade. His pamphlet helped sway the English Parliament to outlaw this hideous trade. This is a crucial piece of primary historical evidence about the history of a vile blot on Europe’s and America’s history.
