Re: Query - European Sites Related to Slavery & African Diaspora

From Juliane Schlag

Here is one of the bigest research centers on Slavery (http://www2.hull.ac.uk/fass/wise.aspx), because the city had been involved in the naval slave trade (still visible in the architecture of the city) and had became famous for its Anti-slavery moment led by William Wilberforce (http://slaveryandremembrance.org/partners/partner/?id=P0009). I hope that helps.

Kind Regards, Juliane Schlag
