We are delighted to welcome Dr Rowan Williams to talk about the life and work of Dean Peter Peckard. Dean Peckard was a former Dean of Peterborough Cathedral and Vice-Chancellor of Magdalen College, who was also a fierce campaigner against the slave trade. His pamphlet of 1778 – ‘Am I not a Man and a Brother?’ – was hugely influential on such activists as Thomas Clarkson and William Wilberforce. This is a rare chance to hear about a true unsung hero of Peterborough.
