WHAT WE ARE ABOUT
Founded in the aftermath of the First World War, the Anglo-Swedish Society was established to foster greater understanding and friendship between Britain and Sweden. The continued strong bond between these two nations has allowed the Society to evolve into a non-proﬁt organisation that promotes intellectual and cultural crossover by organising prestigious events and supporting scholarships of the arts.

The opening ceremony, reception and key speeches of this international conference will be held in the Egyptian Hall of the Mansion House.
This Conference will be a major international event of topical and universal interest, the first of its kind, which will for the first time give a complete picture and a full-length portrait of an internationally active Swedish-English advocate of the rights of Africans and free trade with Africa on the people’s own terms, and will present a number of historical arguments against racism and oppression.
This will also result in the first book ever published that covers material hitherto scattered in English, French, and Swedish archives in different languages, which no single biographer has as yet been able to overview and assess.
