Slavery and its Legacy Exhibition

2007 was the 200th anniversary of the end of slavery in Britain, and the British African Slave Trade. This anniversary saw many commemorative events throughout Britain. Sands of Time Consultancy produced a travelling display and education resource. One set of panels was presented to the Museums Association of the Caribbean to tour the Caribbean.

Along with 12 panels there is a small collection of original illustrations and artifacts, but this will be dependant on an organisation's insurance, security and environmental conditions.

Please contact Nigel Sadler if you wish to be a partner or if you would like to hire the travelling display

One panel will look at the slave ships which carried out this barbaric trade. Another panel will look at the anti slave ship patrols in the Atlantic post 1811 and the ships of this period
