'Amazing Grace' depicts the life of the 18th century politician William Wilberforce - one of the youngest ever members of parliament, who left behind a legacy that would be remembered for hundreds of years. At the age of just 21, he found the courage to take on the British Empire in order to abolish slavery - over time becoming allies with Prime Minister James Pitt as the two men fought together to put an end to the inhuman trade. Valuable for its depiction of Britain’s large involvement in the slave trade, the film offers a narrative from which to discuss slavery with young audiences as well as the significant role of history in the understanding of racism within a UK context.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."

- Marlon Perkins, Teacher, Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed CofE Junior School, Kent
