HA Webinar: Female slave-ownership in eighteenth- and nineteenth- century Britain 

Event Type: CPD

Takes Place: 28th September 2021

Time: 4.00 - 5.00pm

Venue: Zoom

Description: There is a great deal of discussion at the moment about how we engage with and confront the history and legacies of slavery in twenty-first century Britain. A lot of attention has been placed on men like slave trader Edward Colston or merchant and slave-owner Robert Milligan, both of whom were memorialised in prominent statues. But what about the women who were involved in the process? This webinar will investigate the British women who were key players in this violent, brutal and degrading system and who used their wealth, generated from the enslavement of other human beings, to help shape British society, and as a consequence, the world that we live in today.
