Event Details

Dr William Pettigrew from the University of Kent will reveal the central role slavery has played in the development of the City of London over the past two millennia. Locations in the tour include the headquarters of the Royal African Company, which between 1672 and 1740 operated a monopoly over the Transatlantic Slave Trade and trafficked 150,000 Africans. Also on the route is the London Guildhall, location of the Zong case of 1781, which exposed how a Liverpool slave trade threw 133 slaves overboard to claim insurance. The decision by the then Lord Chief Justice not to rule the deaths as murder led to angry protests and helped spread support for the abolitionist cause. 

All proceeds go to Anti-Slavery International.
