Toppling statues and renaming buildings | The Black Lives Matter Movement and the history of slavery
The Black Lives Matter movement has, in recent months, led to a resurgence of discussion around Britain’s involvement in the Transatlantic slave trade and how this should be remembered. Events in the UK (such as the toppling of Colston’s statue in Bristol, and calls to rename streets in Liverpool) have generally mirrored those in the United States, where there has been a widespread removal of monuments to people with links to slavery.
Thursday 15th October 2:15-3pm via ZOOM. Targeted at pupils in Years 10-13.
