Local roots / global routes: the legacies of British slave-ownership
Hackney Museum and Archives have a track record of engaging local communities to explore their heritage in creative and dynamic ways. Local Roots / Global Routes explored Hackney’s local histories and the wider Legacies of British slave-ownership in conjunction with UCL’s History Department and Legacies of British Slave-ownership project.
The partners worked with two local secondary schools to create a performance-based session and interactive educational resource for Key Stages 3 and 4 based on Legacies of British Slave-ownership material. Teacher training sessions were hosted and a filmed version of the resource produced. UCL staff also delivered workshops, a walking tour and a showcase event for Black History Month in Hackney during October 2014.
