Jess and I went to the cinema and saw Amazing Grace. It’s an incredible movie, definitely worth seeing. It’s the story of William Wilberforce who fought for the abolition of slavery in Brittish territories. It’s a tear jerker so take some tissues with you. The saddest thing that I thought of during the movie is that slavery hasn’t been abolished throughout the world.
We’re going to be doing some research and reading about this for school! There are free resources at the Amazing Grace movie website (link above) for high school level study.
Quote from the website:
PEOPLE TRAFFICKING IS ONE OF THE WORLD’S FASTEST GROWING ILLEGAL INDUSTRIES.
