FREE Exhibition and Talks
An ambitious exhibition of previously unseen original texts, manuscripts and artefacts which document the history of the Slave Trade and the Abolition Movement. The exhibition will include intriguing items such as pictures of the Jamaica Mission of Reverend William Knibb (1803 - 1845); abolitionist poetry; slave ship images; and items relating to the slave rebellion of 1832. Visitors will also be encouraged to contemplate modern issues of slavery and human rights.
