7th Annual Lecture: ‘Lest We Forget’

A perspective on African Caribbean Family History

Sunday 18th November 2018 4pm to 7pm
Stratford Library, 3 The Grove, London E15 1EL

Dr James Dawkins is a socio-economic historian and an associate member of the Legacies of British Slave-ownership project based at University College London (UCL). His lecture will reflect on how the labour of his enslaved ancestors enriched the white Dawkins family to such an extent that they became one of England’s wealthiest slave-owning dynasties. He will draw upon untouched 18th and 19th century manuscripts listing the names of his enslaved ancestors, maps of the Jamaican estates they were held upon and accounts of the yearly revenue generated from the sale of sugar and rum.
