Quaker Women and Anti-Slavery Activism: Eleanor Clark and the Free Labour Cotton Depot in Street

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This article explores the anti-slavery activity of Quaker Eleanor Stephens Clark. It concerns a 'depot' or shop that she ran from 1853 until 1858, selling cotton goods cultivated by free-labour, rather than slave labour. This was part of the Free produce Movement which promoted a boycott of slave-made goods and thus offered shoppers a practical contribution to abolitionism or even a remedy for the problem of slavery.
