Colin Grant, Alex Renton and Thomas Harding | Britain’s legacy of slavery

Spring Festival 2022

Does Britain have amnesia when it comes to the slave trade? How do we reckon with this violent history, alongside the legacies of slavery which persist into the present? Alex Renton (Blood Legacy: Reckoning with a Family’s Story of Slavery) and Thomas Harding (White Debt: The Demerara Uprising and Britain’s Legacy of Slavery) grapple with these issues in conversation with Colin Grant, author, historian, and expert on the Windrush Generation.
