This chapter focuses on visual depictions of the American slave trade. The discussions include how visual arts played a vital role in Britain’s encounter with slavery; how Eyre Crowe’s decision to sketch the American slave trade connected him with the decades-earlier efforts to end the international African slave trade; and the influence of Stowe’s Uncle Tom’s Cabin on the antislavery movement.
