Part of our Associated Events Programme
Join us to commemorate Black History Month and discover why William Wilberforce gave the young Dorothy Wordsworth ten guineas a year. Who were the Wordsworths visiting on the day they saw the famous daffodils? Who sat in the Dove Cottage kitchen and gave a first-hand report of what went on on-board the slave ships of the early 1800s? What connects Wordsworth, Haiti and post-revolutionary France? Find out more about the Wordsworths and their circle at the height of the anti-slavery campaign with Susan Allen from the Wordsworth Trust. Our lunchtime lectures last half an hour, but anyone who can stay on a little longer is welcome to join the conversation afterwards.
