Ink and Blood: Stories of abolition

Monday 21st August - Sunday 8th April
Next on: Sunday 22nd October

This is an all day event

Price: Free

Ink and blood: stories of abolition explores the personal stories of previously enslaved people and the lasting legacies of, and contemporary responses to, abolition.

The exhibition brings together a fascinating private collection, iconic documents from leading museums and archives in Britain, and rare objects from both the Anti-Slavery International library and those collected as part of the Heritage Lottery Fund Collecting Cultures project.

The exhibition tells the stories of those affected by abolition (the ending of slavery) and later, freedom. It is an opportunity to see abolition up close through ink (paper) and blood (people).

Running from 21 August 2017 – 8 April 2018 at the  International Slavery Museum.
