'Advocates of Freedom is a thoroughly researched, clearly written, interdisciplinary study of transatlantic African American abolitionists. Based on a mind-bogglingly extensive mapping project that showcases new and radical speech-making and performances, it will profoundly alter our perceptions of nineteenth century Black Atlantic culture and history.' Alan Rice, Professor in English and American Studies, University of Central Lancashire, Preston
'Murray's work maps the abolitionist and anti-lynching activism of African American men and women in Britain within those cartographies of freedom made possible by their self-emancipatory work. She identifies performance and print culture as vehicles of resistance in the struggle against slavery and the violent racism that both accompanied it and its legacy.' Fionnghuala Sweeney, University of Newcastle
