Presented by the School of Geography and Institute for the Study of Slavery in association with the AHRC Global Cotton Connections project and Nottingham Slave Trade Legacies group.
Join David Olusoga, historian and broadcaster, and Katie Donington, Centre for Research in Race and Rights, as they discusses ‘Britain’s Forgotten Slave Owners’ following the BBC Two documentary broadcast earlier this year. Expect a look at the scale of the slave trade, and the extraordinary choice by the government of the day to compensate slave owners for their ‘loss of property’.
