Local roots / global routes: the legacies of British slave-ownership
Hackney Museum & Archives
have a track record of engaging local communities to explore their
heritage in creative and dynamic ways. Building on these expertise this
project will explore Hackney’s local histories and the wider legacies of British slave-ownership
in the borough. Hackney Museum & Archives will work with local
secondary schools to create a locally relevant performance-based session
and an interactive educational resource for Key Stage 3 using the’ Legacies of British Slave-Ownership’ database created by UCL.
These resources will be produced in collaboration with Hackney secondary schools, a community consultant, student interns and creative art practitioners. Teacher training sessions will be hosted and a filmed version of the resource will be produced. To link the schools offer into a wider context of public engagement, UCLs ‘Legacies of British Slave-Ownership’ project staff will deliver workshops, a walking tour and a showcase event for Black History Month in Hackney during October 2014.
