Celia Brayfield - Writing Black Beauty - Anna Sewell and the Story of Animal Rights

Bestselling author Celia Brayfield tells the story of an extraordinary woman. Anna Sewell grew up in Victorian London, permanently disabled from an early age fall. Rejecting the life of a invalid, she developed a remarkable empathy with horses. Rebellious and independent minded, empowered by women writers, activists and abolitionists, she wrote her now book - Black Beauty - published sadly after her death. It became a beacon for the animal welfare movement.
