Open to: Academic | Alumni | Public | Student
Ticketing: Open

Slave-ownership was central to the formation of modern Britain. Even at the moment of abolition in 1833, owners, rather than the enslaved, were compensated to the tune of £20 million. Through words and images, this exhibition traces the contentious lives and legacies of those slave-owners who lived close to the newly-founded UCL. Organised by the Legacies of British Slave-ownership project to mark Black History Month 2011.
