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.
