When Newton was just eleven, he joined his father at sea and began a tumultuous life in the Navy, eventually becoming captain of a slave ship. In a period of four years, however, his life was drastically turned around: In he gave up the slave trade and joined forces with the great abolitionist, William Wilberforce.
