The Museum of London Docklands London, Sugar & Slavery Gallery

Just after 10 years from the opening of the London, Sugar & Slavery gallery Museum in Docklands, the Museum of London, community leaders and academics who formed the London, Sugar & Slavery Advisory Group invites audiences to join them in reflecting and gathering responses to the gallery.  Over one million people have visited the gallery over the last 10 years. With contributions from artists, museum practitioners, community leaders and groups, researchers and students the day will explore the significance of the gallery and the ways that the histories of black people are explored in national museums and how these museums engage with people of African Caribbean descent nowadays.  With performances, speech and poetry from event supporters Renaissance One and guest artists including Kei Miller, Michael Brome, Jay Bernard (via a video poem), Tobago Crusoe and Melanie Abrahams.
