Equiano House is named after Olaudah Equiano (1745-1797). A former slave from The Kingdom of Benin who bought his own freedom, he sowed the seeds for the suffrage and Chartist movements in Britain. He is widely credited with being Britain’s first black political leader and civil servant (as commissary of the Sierra Leone project). Equiano understood that movements are only stronger when disparate groups across faiths, genders and class come together. He not only tolerated diversity within the abolition movement, but actively encouraged and celebrated it. He is an inspirational man who perfectly embodies the ideas of justice, equality and diversity.
The Head of Equiano House is James Jowett
