Making Freedom Exhibition
Wed 1st Jan – Fri 1st Jan 2016
The MAKING FREEDOM exhibition, which marks the 175th anniversary of the 1838 emancipation of nearly a million Africans in the Caribbean, is on tour during 2014 and 2015. After successful events at the Marcus Garvey Library and the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) in 2013, Windrush Foundation wishes to give other organisations the opportunity to host the exhibition during 2014 or 2015.
It is the first time that important collections from Royal Geographical Society (with IBG), the National Maritime Museum, the National Portrait Gallery, the National Archives, Anti-Slavery International, and the Imperial War Museum have been brought together in an exhibition on the Emancipation of Africans in the Caribbean. The exhibition, which is free to hire, celebrates those who resisted enslavement, those who fought to end it, and others who worked in Britain to stop forced servitude. It will show visitors how Africans in the Caribbean hastened full Emancipation.
