About the Event

London is a powerhouse. A financial centre, a history of wealth and importance. But where was this status built on? We take a look at how the City of London was implicated in the Transatlantic Slave Trade, and what part it played, in order to secure its own position.

We will investigate modern day institutions which benefitted from the slave trade well into the 21st century, and visit tiny alleyways which hide secrets from the small but impressive powerhouses behind the industry. We also take a look at the people who were instrumental in the abolition movement, and visit the place where some of the most important documents in support of abolition were printed.

Participants limited to 12 people during Covid times.
