Throughout Equiano's life in the United States he was a diligent worker, was taught to read & write along his time spent at sea on trade routes. Then in 1766 he bought his freedom and spent the next twenty years exploring and trading all across the Atlantic Ocean from the Arctic to the Caribbean. Later in his life he moved to Britain eventually marrying and having two daughters.
Equiano was a prominent figure in London and often served as a spokesman for the black community and aiding freed Africans living in London. Equiano was one of the founding member of "Sons of Africa," an abolitionist movement in London promoting the end of slavery and assisting freed slaves new starts and later went on to write a memoir and autobiography which was said to influence the Slave Trade Act of 1807 which ended African trade for Britain and its colonies. This work earned recognition for the "true beginning of modern African literature."
