This new feature documentary shows how the 18th century Church became embroiled in chattel slavery. We discover how the Church justified its involvement in the trade and its lasting impact. The film then explores what this means for Christian reconciliation today. View the trailer below.

There will be an opportunity to network and take part in some light refreshments. Then the screening of the film will be followed by a Q&A with a panellist featuring individuals from the film and leading academics. There will also be an opportunity to view the MJR Exhibition.
