Slavery Remembrance Day 2011

The first ever Walk of Remembrance was held on Monday 22 August 2011. Drummers led the procession through the city to the site of the old dock, where renowned activist scholar Dr Maulana Karenga addressed the crowd.

The two day programme of events finished with a Black origins discussion panel featuring four notable speakers.
