British Slave Ownership

The current display in the South Cloisters is part of Catherine Hall's (Department of History) ESCR funded project on Legacies of British Slave-ownership.

Slave-ownership was central to the formation of modern Britain. Even at the moment of abolition in 1833, owners, rather than the enslaved, were compensated to the tune of £20 million. Through words and images, this exhibition traces the contentious lives and legacies of those slave-owners who lived close to the newly-founded UCL.

A free walkers' guide to "George Hibbert's London" is also available at the exhibition.

This has been organised by the Legacies of British Slave-ownership project to mark Black History Month 2011.
