Black History Month Lecture: A Bitter Sweet Journey: from slavery to freedom and beyond the colour line

The Atlantic slave trade transported Black human bodies to the British colonies of the Caribbean and to other parts of the world. In 1834, slavery was abolished in the British Empire, but abolition did not end Britain’s association with slavery. And yet, even as the British empire remained entrenched in the world of slavery, there were reformers who placed great faith in the liberal ideas of freedom and who sought justice, righteousness and the right to freedom and equality.
