Who Is Charles Grant?
Charles Grant was one of the most important businessmen in history. Why? As a visionary Director of the East India Company he decided not to accept profit at any cost and used his power and influence to help end the slave trade.
As Director of the East India Company he led a multinational business at a time when the slave trade was not only thought to be lawful, but was also an integral part of the global economy. He had the courage to speak out against the slave trade. When he did, others started to stand up in business and speak out too. Within a few years, slavery became illegal.
