Facing the Past and Transforming the Future

7 December @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Dr Sunita Abraham and Lancaster Black History Group explore Lancaster’s links to transatlantic slavery.

Lancaster Black History Group (LBHG) is a new grassroots community group of local residents working to fight racism through education.

Over the last 10 months, members of the local community have been working alongside LBHG members to research the ways in which prominent local families in 18th century Lancaster were associated with transatlantic slavery.

The Slavery Family Trees project examines their family trees and highlights the interconnections both locally and globally to other families, business and faith groups associated with direct and/or indirect links to the slave trade and plantation slavery.

This session provides an insight into some of these findings by highlighting how schools, university students, voluntary organisations, community and faith groups from across the city have come together to produce and record community stories and learning that will allow local people to work together to face the past, and in doing so transform the future.
