Anne Knight Education Fund

Help us raise funds to create an innovative online learning programme, which firstly uncovers the truth behind Britain’s role in the inhumane international slave trade and secondly explores Anne Knight, a Chelmsford born social reformer and activist who dedicated her life to the immediate abolishment of slavery.

With your help, young people will learn the hidden history of Britain’s slave trade and Anne Knight. Through our learning, we’ll travel in Anne Knight’s footsteps on an expedition in pursuit of Justice, Peace, and Freedom! Why does this incredible woman, who has been laid to rest, in a tiny commune in France, still have people visit her grave to this day?  Why has a village in Jamaica, Knightville, been named in her honour? And how could we better commemorate her in her hometown?
