Event description

Description

In the late 18th and early 19th centuries, abolitionists and their opposition used the arts to take part in the slavery debates. Poetry, theatre, art, and literature contained depictions of plantation life that were carefully crafted to sway public opinion and influence Parliament. This talk will explore the role of the arts in communicating ideas about slavery and the enslaved.  Tutor-Dr Paula Dumas
