Wooden Shoe Book, 704 South Street, Philadelphia PA 19147.

260 years of bloody colonial history – an illustrated talk.

A mighty counter blast to the deoiction of Quaker, Willaim Penn as a peace lover and promoter of brotherhood and religious freedom.

It will include: how Penn’s family accumulated their wealth over five generations; their constant anti-republicanism; their involvement in the trans-Atlantic slave trade and the bloody colonial British expansion into Ireland, Jamaica and America.

It will change the commonly held image of Pennsylvania Quakers as slave abolitionists.
