Bristol and Transatlantic Slavery: Origins, Impact and Legacy

A group of eight Bristol history teachers have been working, in collaboration with Bristol Museums, to improve available teaching materials about Bristol’s historic links to slavery. The group consulted on the text book with leading academics and black teachers in Bristol and London, along with a Bristol-based network of African and African-Caribbean community organisations, African Voices Forum, as well as local teaching experts from the University of Bristol. Together they have supplemented the existing curriculum so that schoolchildren in Bristol have a better chance of fully understanding this part of Bristol’s story.
