You will be working in role either as:
History education officers at a museum or •representatives from a charity working against slavery in the modern world or •an African-Caribbean campaign group The writing in your exhibition and your choices of artefacts should show the point of view of your group. Your class members should be able to work out who you are without being told.
The exhibition should include each of the following (you may wish to allocate roles within your group accordingly)
•an explanation of how the slave trade operated (What were the stages? How was money made? Who benefited?)
•an explanation of how slavery was abolished (When did this happen? Why did it happen? Who was important in bringing it about?)
•Some thoughts and comments on the legacy of slavery (in the short term, in the long term, on particular parts of Britain, in different countries, for different racial groups today both nationally and internationally)
A selection of objects and images which you think are particularly important or revealing.
