Slavery – the local connection, and local opposition to it

What did landlocked Leicester have to do with it?

David Johnson, former history lecturer at Leicester University has written and lectured extensively on this shameful area of our history. This is the 200th anniversary of the abolition of the slave trade in Britain (but not of slavery itself).

Stay after the talk for light refreshmens and an informal chat with the speaker and other members.
