Revealing Histories: Remembering Slavery

Explore our new Highlights Tour of objects linked to the transatlantic slave trade. This is a new type of tour which is dynamic and interactive, inviting you to add your own interpretations and thoughts about objects in our collection.

The Revealing Histories: Remembering Slavery Highlights Tour is based on seven objects from our collection that are linked to Manchester's involvement in the transatlantic slave trade. Since March 2007, we have been inviting new interpretations about these objects, including written texts, drawings, sound and video recordings. Follow the tour to discover many different points of view about these objects and this history.
