A new exhibition exploring the North-East's links to the slave trade.
‘Legacies of Slavery: Transatlantic Slavery and Aberdeen’ is a new exhibition exploring the North-East’s links to the slave trade.
It forms part of the University’s commitment to improve understanding of both the institution’s own colonial legacy and the wider region’s connections to the enslavement of people.
‘Legacies of Slavery: Transatlantic Slavery and Aberdeen’ will run from March 27 to December 2, 2023 at the University of Aberdeen’s Sir Duncan Rice Library Gallery.
Entry is FREE.
