HEROES OF SLAVERY ABOLITION
200th Anniversary of the abolition of British slavery in law (on paper). Much of the focus will be on the brave abolitionist who risked their lives to bring about a change in inhuman laws. However there is an aspect of the study of slavery which has been used negatively in schools and universities, simply put the study of slavery can be used as a tool to humiliate people of African diaspora, there is a lot of emphasis on how Africans were defeated and brutalised with many lecturers relishing the chance to relive the inhumanity.
There is one fact that is strangely almost always left out in these discussions, and that is the fact that slaves, both men and women won many battles against unbelievable odds and in many cased had complete victory over what could be classed as the hyper power of armies of enslavement – we need to hear more about heroes of abolition.

Maroon Warrior hero
Most slave communities refused to accept slavery and fought tirelessly (sometimes to the last man woman and child) against brutal armies of enslavement.
Cudjo the Mountain Lion is one of Jamaica’s greatest heroes, with only 300 fighting men and teenagers he defeated a British enslavement army of over 3000 fully armed and equipped soldiers (equivalent in today’s terms to an army of 100,000 poorly armed soldiers facing an army of 10,000,000 as well equipped and trained as the modern American army of today) - one man fights ten.
The victorious maroons won an independent homeland on the island of Jamaica. The treaty between the Cudjo maroons and the British government was signed in 1739.
