What sorts of (specific) reasons does Equiano give to end the slave trade? (humanitarian and economic)
Answers 1Add Yours
Equiano knew that one of the most powerful arguments against slavery was his own life story. Slavery deprives both the slave and the master their humanity. He also argued that slavery did not make economic sense. It is very cost intensive and drains the economy rather than adding to it. He also added that Slavery was against God.
