Robert Wedderburn’s mother was a slave named Rossanna. Wedderburn became a tailor, as did that other black revolutionary William Cuffey, who in the 1830s was to head the far left of the London Chartist movement. Robert was born in 1762 in Jamaica into a world of legalised barbarism. In his autobiography he recounted how I have seen my poor mother stretched on the ground, tied hands and feet, and flogged in the most indecent manner though pregnant at the same time. Wedderburn’s activity got him into trouble on many occasions.
