Collection: Black History

This issue is not relevant for one month of the year only (we do have an official Black History month in Britain, in October 2022). Slavery with all its brutality, murder and dehumanization as an easy means of enrichment, enacted by perpetrators sufficiently educated in Christianity to have known this to be the 'National Sin', still reverberates through societies today. I find it rather astonishing how long it took after the last slave owner's estate had been paid the full compensation for 'lost property' triggered by the final abolition of slavery in the British Empire (soon to be supplanted by bonded labour and similar 'legal' superstructures) for this issue to enter  the debate of wider society. The glimpses of hope past and present are the encouraging movements for liberation and self-determination, re-humanization, education and proud resistance, by lives lived by activists of all creeds and colours working against racism and hypocrisy. If we don't know or want to know history, how can we ever deal with it?
