This week I met with Dr. Jessica Moody of Bristol University to discuss the ways in which Bristol has publicly addressed its involvement in the Transatlantic slave trade. We touched on methods of commemoration (using Liverpool as a point of comparison)and explored some of the reasons behind Bristol’s changing attitude towards her slaving past.

    Hello – can you tell me anything about the dog featured in the photograph here? She looks very like one I fostered for a homeless couple who disappeared a couple of years ago. I would so love to hear that she was well and in a happy home!
