William Wilberforce Movie

Coinciding with the 200th anniversary of the British Parliament’s passage of a bill banning the transportation of slaves (February 23, 2007), the movie Amazing Grace brought to the big screen the life of William Wilberforce, a key figure in the British abolition movement. Wilberforce’s life and work have lessons for us as we engage culture and work to uphold human dignity amidst the bioethical challenges of our day.
