Equiano was appointed to an expedition to resettle London's Black Poor in Freetown , a new British colony founded on the west coast of Africa, at present-day Sierra Leone. They were aided by John Clarkson , younger brother of abolitionist Thomas Clarkson.

Jamaican maroons , as well as slaves liberated from illegal ships after Britain abolished the slave trade, also settled at Freetown in the early decades. Equiano was dismissed from the new settlement after protesting against financial mismanagement and he returned to London.
Equiano was a prominent figure in London and often served as a spokesman for the black community. He was one of the leading members of the Sons of Africa , a small abolitionist group composed of free Africans in London. They were closely allied with the Society for the Abolition of the Slave Trade. Equiano's comments on issues were frequently published in newspapers such as the Public Advertiser and the Morning Chronicle. He had much more of a public voice than most Africans or Black Loyalists , and he seized various opportunities to use it.
After settling in England, Equiano decided to marry and have a family. He included his marriage in every edition of his autobiography from onwards. Critics have suggested he believed that his marriage symbolised an expected commercial union between Africa and Great Britain.
The couple settled in the area and had two daughters, Anna Maria — and Joanna — Susannah died in February , aged 34, and Equiano died a year after that on 31 March ,  aged 52 sources differ on his age.
A guardianship would have been established for her. Joanna Vassa married the Rev. They moved to London in the middle of the 19th century. Equiano died on 31 March and was buried at Whitefield's Methodist chapel on 6 April. It was renovated in the s for use by Congregationalists , now the site of the American International Church.
Lastly, he lived in Paddington Street, Middlesex , where he died. At this time, due to having lost the British colonies after long warfare and especially the violent excesses of the French Revolution , British society was tense because of fears of open revolution. Reformers were considered more suspect than in other periods. Equiano aged 51 had been an active member of the London Corresponding Society , which campaigned to extend the vote to working men. Equiano's will provided for projects he considered important. In case of his surviving daughter's death before reaching the age of majority 21 , he bequeathed half his wealth to the Sierra Leone Company for continued assistance to West Africans, and half to the London Missionary Society , which promoted education overseas.click
By the early 19th century, The Missionary Society had become well known worldwide as non-denominational; many of its members were Congregational. Following publication in of a newly edited version of his memoir by Paul Edwards , interest in Equiano was revived; additional editions of his work have been published since then. Nigerian scholars have also begun studying him. He was especially valued as a pioneer in asserting "the dignity of African life in the white society of his time.

In researching his life, some scholars since the late 20th century have disputed Equiano's account of his origins. In , Vincent Carretta, a professor of English editing a new version of Equiano's memoir, found two records that led him to question the former slave's account of being born in Africa. He first published his findings in the journal Slavery and Abolition. Equiano was certainly African by descent. The circumstantial evidence that Equiano was also African-American by birth and African-British by choice is compelling but not absolutely conclusive. Although the circumstantial evidence is not equivalent to proof, anyone dealing with Equiano's life and art must consider it.
According to Carretta, Vassa's baptismal record and a naval muster roll document him as from South Carolina. But, Paul Lovejoy, Alexander X. Byrd, and Douglas Chambers note how many general and specific details Carretta can document from sources that related to the slave trade in the s as described by Equiano, including the voyages from Africa to Virginia, sale to Captain Michael Henry Pascal in , and others.
They conclude he was more likely telling what he understood as fact than creating a fictional account; his work is shaped as an autobiography.

Lovejoy uses the name of Vassa in his article, since that was what the man used throughout his life, in "his baptism, his naval records, marriage certificate and will". Other historians also argue that the fact that many parts of Equiano's account can be proven lends weight to accepting his account of African birth. As historian Adam Hochschild has written:. In the long and fascinating history of autobiographies that distort or exaggerate the truth.
Seldom is one crucial portion of a memoir totally fabricated and the remainder scrupulously accurate; among autobiographers He also noted that "since the 'rediscovery' of Vassa's account in the s, 'scholars have valued it as the most extensive account of an eighteenth-century slave's life' and the difficult passage from slavery to freedom.
Numerous works about Equiano have been produced for and since the bicentenary of Britain's abolition of the slave trade:. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
