Event description
A talk by author Nigel Sadler to commemorate the passing of the Slavery Abolition Act on August 1st, 1834

About this event

In 2020 the Black Lives Matter movement in Briton protested in many cities and towns, resulting in several monuments to men linked to the slave trade being torn down, removed or defaced. It opened up a discussion on how our past is portrayed through monuments, buildings and street names when linked to those involved in the slave trade or profited from the labour of enslaved workers. In this talk Nigel Sadler will illustrate how those involved in slavery and emancipation are remembered in the urban landscapes and discuss some of the more controversial statues and memorials.

Nigel Sadler has been researching and writing articles and books on slavery since 2000, with his latest publication being ‘The Legacy of the Slavery in Britain’, published in 2018.
