Description

Rob Burroughs, ‘Black history and the anti-slavery movement in the nineteenth century.’

Focusing on the roles played by Africans in exposing atrocities in King Leopold’s Congo at the end of the nineteenth century, this conversation explores black contributions to humanitarian history, and the ways in which these efforts have sometimes been obscured by attention to the heroics of white anti-slavery activists.
