William Wilberforce, son of Hull, led the long and arduous campaign against the slave trade, which resulted in the abolition bill in 1807, a turning point in British history. In 2007, it will be 200 years since this momentous occasion. The UK, led by the city of Hull, will commemorate the abolition of the slave trade and celebrate the spirit of bravery, determination and the acceptance of others that helped make it happen.
