Black Georgians

To mark Black History Month, the museum is hosting a study day examining the lives of Black children and servants in eighteenth and early ninteenth century Britain

Join SI Martin, journalist for The Voice newspaper, and a team of speakers to examine the different experiences of Black people living in Georgian England. Subjects include London's Black street children, some of whom lived at the Foundling Hospital, Francis Barber, the servant and friend of Dr Samuel Johnson, and George Alexander Gratton, an enslaved child who was exhibited as a curiosity because of his unusual appearance due to piebaldism.

The day starts at the Hunterian Museum and moves the the Foundling Museum in the afternoon. There will be a chance to explore both museums and the ticket price includes free admission to Dr Johnson's House until 22 November
