Ellen Craft (1826 - 1891) and William Craft (1824 - 1900)

The Crafts escaped from slavery in Georgia in 1848. The light-skinned Ellen posed as a white male planter with her husband William as her slave, as they travelled by train and steamship to the North. In 1850, Bristol Unitarian John Estlin helped them flee to England to escape Southern bounty hunters and Mary Carpenter hosted them on subsequent visits to Bristol to address anti-slavery campaigners.

The text reads: "Having heard God made one blood of all nations, we could not understand by what right we were held as chattel."

Journey to Justice Bristol

Throughout October 2017 the Peoples Republic of Stokes Croft (PRSC) and Journey to Justice Bristol (JToJ) collaborated on a project to visualise Bristol’s history of activism and struggles for social justice.

Part of a variety of exciting and innovative activities for the JToJ event, PRSC worked with JToJ to celebrate and honour key activists in Bristol that have contributed to and inspired the social movement, but have not been recognised for their actions. To raise awareness about these people, we feature their likeness and ideas on fine bone china mugs and prints.
