This chapter reviews the major Africa campaigns in Britain: the campaign to abolish slavery, It analyses each campaign as part of a campaign tradition. It does this by connecting the campaign’s efforts to represent Africa through frame analysis. More specifically, the chapter focuses on three forms of framing: diagnostic, prognostic, and motivational framing. The chapter highlights certain core practices of representation: the boycott, petitions, and the use of propaganda.

Keywords:   Framing, Diagnostic framing, Prognostic framing, Motivational framing, Abolitionism, Anti-Apartheid, Jubilee 2000, Make Poverty History
