Britain's legacy of slavery (UCL)

Professor Catherine Hall (UCL History) and her team in the project Legacies of British Slave-ownership are examining how modern Britain, from its art collections and grand buildings to its financial institutions, has been built on the wealth generated from slavery. The project is tracing the slave owners who benefitted from the £20m paid in compensation in the 1830s and where this money subsequently went. In this video, Professor Hall reflects on the texts of two women from the 19th century -- one a slave, the other an abolitionist and daughter of a wealthy slave owner.
