March Meeting – Slavery – Dr NIck Draper

Prize winning author Dr Nick Draper gave us a really fascinating talk about slavery for our March meeting.    Nick described the rise of slavery from the 16th century and what happened after it was abolished, to both the slaves and the slave-owners, pointing out the links to the slave trade with some local landmarks and streets which are all close to home.
