Sugar nippers gallery trail label: Like sugar nippers that break off lumps - Mary

Sugar nippers - like sugar nippers that break off

+ Full Screen Image

Like sugar nippers that break off lumps of imperialist greed; I have been broken from my roots; corroded the culture of my families soul; Irish, gypsy. My grandparents forced by starvation to poverty, to rest in Manchester Industrial City. Ironic really I was fed sugar water by my granny to keep me strong at 3 hrs old!

This is a label written by a visitor to Manchester Art Gallery in response to the Revealing Histories: Remembering Slavery Gallery Trail of objects on display that are linked to the transatlantic slave trade.
