The 2017 Dorothy Kuya Slavery Remembrance Lecture
Dr Gee Walker campaigner, educator and founder of the Anthony Walker Foundation, will deliver the Dorothy Kuya Slavery Remembrance Lecture at this year’s Slavery Remembrance commemorations, which also marks 10 years since the opening of the International Slavery Museum.
In July 2005, Gee's son Anthony was murdered in a racially motivated attack in Merseyside. Following Anthony's death, Gee founded the Anthony Walker Foundation, for which she is a patron. Gee supports families who have suffered similar losses and speaks publicly about her personal experience, her forgiveness of Anthony's killers and encourages young people to make better choices.
This event is fully booked. Check the Eventbrite page for further information.
The International Slavery Museum has shared a close relationship with Gee and her family since opening in 2007 and its Anthony Walker Education Centre is named in memory of her son. Dr Gee Walker is also featured in the Museum on its Black Achievers Wall which celebrates Black Achievers past and present.
Please note that the lecture takes place in the Dr Martin Luther King Jr Building, at the entrance to the Albert Dock. Doors open 4.20pm for a 5pm start.
