TODAY IS THE 250th BIRTHDAY OF WILLIAM WILBERFORCE!!!

If you are unfamiliar with the extraordinary life of this man, born August 24th, 1759, please CLICK HERE.  It’s the introduction to my biography, AMAZING GRACE:  William Wilberforce and the Heroic Campaign to End Slavery, published two years ago to commemorate the bicentennial of his historic 1807 achievement, the Abolition of the Slave Trade in the British Empire.

To see me talking about Wilberforce on BookTV, click here.  To see me talking about him on Hannity & Colmes, click here.  And to hear me on NPR’s “Talk of the Nation”, talking with Michael Apted, the director of the AMAZING GRACE movie, also released two years ago, click here.

DO SOMETHING TODAY TO CELEBRATE THE LIFE AND ACCOMPLISHMENTS OF ONE OF THE TRUE HEROES OF HISTORY!   At the very least tell your friends about it, so they can join you in shouting:
