Title: William Howard Day
Speaker or author: Day, William Howard, d. 1900
Newspaper or publication: Leeds Mercury
The speaker proposed that the best way to end slavery is for Europe to boycott cotton grown in the U.S. He advocated that Great Britain and European countries buy cotton grown in Africa instead. This would remove the power of cotton and its contribution to continuing slavery in the U.S. It would also help Liberia to flourish economically.
