Black History Month – Lancaster’s Slavery Business

Lancaster Judges Lodgings Museum

Alongside the Transatlantic Slave Trade, many Lancaster people were heavily involved in slavery through their trade in West-Indian goods and in some cases ownership of plantations. Merchants became powerful and wealthy through trading in rum, sugar, wood and other goods produced by enslaved labour. Expert historian Melinda Elder reveals Lancaster’s many links to the slavery business.

Cost £5.00 which includes entrance to the museum and refreshments.
