Lancaster Slavery Family Trees Exhibition Launch

October 15th, 11:00

Lancaster City Museum

Lancaster Black History Group (LBHG) is a grassroots community group working to fight racism through education. In 2021, the LBHG ‘Slavery Family Trees Project’ worked with several schools, university students, voluntary organisations, community and faith groups from across the district to research and record some of Lancaster’s most prolific merchant families involved in transatlantic slavery. This exhibition draws on research from this project that has examined the intertwining of the familial branches which profited from this abhorrent trade. In facing the past more honestly, it is our hope to transform the future.

Everyone is welcome!
