Enriching Experiences: The International Slavery Museum


Today, Year 6 visited the International Slavery Museum in the Albert Dock as part of our enriching experiences for our local history topic. During the visit, we explored how the people of West Africa lived and how the African culture was immersed and  exploited throughout the slave trade. Additionally, we also evaluated how the Liverpool slave trade impacted not only our city but the wider world. We were shocked and appalled to see the iron shackles that were used to restrain the African slaves and we were moved by the testimonies from many slave survivors such as Olaudah Equiano (a brave abolitionist and former slave who we will be learning about in further detail soon!)
