Let’s follow Dominic Burris North, Blue Badge Guide for a tour of the City of London looking at the multiple legacies of the transatlantic enslavement and London’s involvement in it.On this thought-provoking tour we will look at the origins of the English and British trade in enslaved Africans, some of the institutions and individuals involved, African resistance to enslavement, the abolition campaigns, how it was enslavers, not those who had been enslaved, that were compensated when slavery was abolished and how that compensation money was used.
We will meet at the front of St Paul’s Cathedral by the statue of Queen Anne and will finish around 12.30 pm in Fen Court, near Monument Tube Station
