‘The Buxton Connection’ - Talk by Carissa Nightingale on Tuesday, 14th March at 7.15pm at the Fort

On Thursday, 5th January, 2017, President Uhuru Kenyatta officially opened the Buxton Footbridge, which crosses the highway in the area of Mombasa Island, called Buxton that is adjacent to Nyali Bridge.

Why is this area called Buxton and what is its connection to the unprecedented Act of Parliament, passed in London, in 1833, which freed all slaves in the British Empire?

Carissa Nightingale (nee Buxton) will explain these connections and talk about her illustrious family’s long commitment to liberty, education and progress in Africa. - Madhvi, Secretary FFJ.
