Summary note
"Coinciding with both the 230 year anniversary of the establishing of the first Baptist Church in Jamaica by the Ethiopian Baptist Society and it's brutal demise almost 150 years ago at Morant Bay, 'Slavery's Heroes' documents its pioneers; the men and women who led by George Liele, advocated for a nation from enslavement to emancipation and beyond. This work offers insight into a people, a faith and a movement which demonstrated boldness, bravery and self-sacrifice, as it sought to achieve freedom for generations of people it knew it would never meet."--Page 4 of cover.
