We cannot understand the modern world without learning about the impact of the Transatlantic Slave Trade and it's many legacies. This was a major period of trauma, injustice and economic development in global history. Liverpool slave ships carried an estimated 1.5 million enslaved people into a life of brutal slavery and brave resistance, but Liverpool has also been home to abolitionists and activists who have fought for freedom.

Join our Learning & Participation Team as they guide you through the International Slavery Museum's handling collection, including artefacts that are carriers of history and inspiring examples of resilience and activism.

The artefacts and related discussions will be an accurate and honest reflection of the brutality of slavery and racism. Please be advised that people may find this distressing.

This event is walk-up, on a first come first served basis.
