The Legacies of Transatlantic Slavery in Stirlingshire and Perthshire
Sorry you are too late, this event has been and gone!
This talk given by Tara Leishman uncovers the local evidence abounding in rural Stirlingshire & Perthshire, and explodes the myth that slavery heritage is only confined to Edinburgh and Glasgow.
About The Legacies of Transatlantic Slavery in Stirlingshire and Perthshire
Slavery shaped modern Scotland. It's recognised that Scotland's major cities were built on the transatlantic slave trade, and wealthy and prominent figures were venerated as generous and enlightened, despite being responsible for hundreds of thousands of staggeringly horrific atrocities abroad...
...and today we still live with slavery's legacies - the country houses, churches, schools, universities, railways, roads, domestic residences and public monuments.
The talk will also reveal the dark and unspoken secrets that expose Gartmore as the epicentre of Scottish slavery.
