Slave trade links highlighted in collaboration with Manx National Heritage

We have been pleased to work with Manx National Heritage to create a Google Arts and Culture online story about the Transatlantic Slave Trade and its connections to Peel, now available here:

The presentation is based on a guided walk put together by One World Centre chair Phil Craine and focuses on the locations and past residents of Peel involved with the “Guinea Trade”, as it was euphemistically known, using artefacts and resources from the Island’s national museum collections and archives. 

The Google Arts and Culture story forms part of a series of educational projects that reflect on the impact slavery had in fostering racial and cultural prejudice and injustice which are still playing out in society today. It also highlights that slavery is not consigned to history, with forms of modern slavery still occurring around the world.
