In 2017 Nigel Sadler approached Amberley Publishing and suggested that even though there had been a decade since the bicentenary commemorations of the abolition of the British slave trade in 1807 where much had been promised to address public representation both of those that benefited from slavery or those that had fought against slavery, little had actually be done. It was agreed I could write a book that looked at public monuments, street names and the industrial and commercial landscapes that exist in Britain today that had their roots in the story of enslavement. The book is a good tool to understand the call for change that arose in 2020 and the toppling and removal of some of the statues covered in the book.
