Oh yes, I will study abroad in England, France, Western Africa and Brazil to continue my studies of the Atlantic Slave Trade focusing on the time period between the 15th, and 18th, century. I will continue to study the economic and systemic details of the Atlantic Slave trade from its inception.

I will continue my studies of the US and European abolitionist of their time, with a focus on William Wilberforce the renowned abolitionist, politician, philanthropist, who was the vocal driving force establishing the 1807 Slave Trade Act to Abolish Slavery in all the British Empires, and colonies.
