Seal Of The Abolitionist Movement

An engraving commissioned as the seal for the Society for Effecting the Abolition of the Slave Trade, circa 1787. The seal, which depicts a slave in chains, expressing the inhumanity of slavery with the words 'Am I not a man and a brother?', was later produced as a jasper-ware cameo, or medallion, by the English potter and abolitionist Josiah Wedgwood. The cameo became the most widely-recognised emblem of the anti-slavery campaign. (Photo by MPI/Getty Images)
