THE SLAVE OWNERS OF WEST HERTFORDSHIRE
It is 213 years since Britain abolished the slave trade and 186 years since emancipation for slaves in British colonies. Yet this aspect of our history continues to resonate today. Brian Thomson will talk about the people living in West Hertfordshire who owned slaves in the 18th and 19th century and their place in local society.
