Spoken word: Writers on slavery

Listen to readings and performances on the lives of enslaved people in the intimate setting of The Georgian House Museum.

Poets and writers respond to the history of the Georgian House, its links with the transatlantic slave trade, the price of sugar, and the black servants who worked there.

Extracts of their work will be read simultaneously in different rooms every hour from 12pm.

Audience members will rotate between readings and rooms during the one hour performance to reflect on the history of this house built on the profits of the slave trade and how we remember past lives.

Part of Black History Month.

The Georgian House Museum would like to thank Black History Month event sponsors:
University of Bristol and UWE Bristol.
