Ram Mohan Roy (1777 - 1833)

Roy, a high caste Bengali Hindu, defied traditional taboos to travel to England, becoming friends with Bristol Unitarians who, like him, championed humanitarian causes. Revered today as the ‘Father of Modern India’, he campaigned against rigid caste distinctions, child marriage, purdah, widow burning (sati) and for the education of both women and men. He was buried after a short illness at Arnos Vale Cemetery, Bristol.

About Journey to Justice Bristol

The Peoples Republic of Stokes Croft (PRSC) and Journey to Justice Bristol (JToJ) are participating in a project to visualise Bristol’s history of activism and struggles for social justice.

As part of a variety of exciting and innovative activities for the JToJ event throughout October 2017, PRSC is working 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.
