Share Academy: Local Roots / Global Routes

Local Roots / Global Routes was a collaborative project which was led by Legacies of British Slave-ownership and Hackney Museum and Archives. It was part of the Share Academy programme which was funded by Arts Council England (ACE). Running from December 2013 to June 2015, the project created a Key Stage 3 (ages 13-14) resource concerning the links between Hackney and transatlantic slavery. You can learn more about Local Roots / Global Routes on the project's website, where it is also possible to access the teaching resources.

These resources concern local links within Britain to transatlantic slavery. They include a teaching resource which arose out of original research conducted by the project members along with a broader bibliography and useful web links.
