Freedom and Enslavement Wall

Quotation on wall: "I prefer liberty with danger to peace with slavery"

At the entrance to the International Slavery Museum is the Freedom and Enslavement Wall.

Television screens set into the wall show interviews with a range of people discussing their ideas of freedom and enslavement, from community historians to politicians, schoolchildren, and even people who have themselves been enslaved.

Together they provide a powerful, thought provoking introduction to the themes of the museum.
