Legacies of British Slave-ownership Centre launch event
Launch event for the new Centre for the Study of the Legacies of British Slave-ownership at UCL. The new Centre will be jointly funded by the Hutchins Center at Harvard and by UCL.
The launch will coincide with the publication of a major new update for the LBS database, tracing the ownership of estates from the 1760s to the 1830s, incorporating 20,000 new individuals and linking 8,000 estates in the British Caribbean to the slave compensation records.
The launch event will include a public talk outlining our new work and will be followed by a Q&A session.
