<p><b>Olaudah Equiano</b> was an African writer and abolitionist whose experiences as a slave prompted him to become involved in the British antislavery movement. Born in the area that is now southern Nigeria, he was kidnapped with his sister at around the age of 11, sold by local slave traders and shipped across the Atlantic. After buying his freedom, Equiano worked as an explorer and merchant for 20 years, and eventually settled in England. He published his memoirs in 1789.</p><p></b>Michael Taylor</b> is an historian of colonial slavery, the British Empire and the British Isles.
