This colourful banner was made by the children of Lancaster Quaker meeting in response to their exploration of the “Captured Africans” Slave Trade Memorial near to Lancaster’s Millennium Bridge.
Response to the Lancaster Slave Trade Memorial by Children of Lancaster Quaker Meeting

Slave Trade Memorial Banner created by Children of Lancaster Quaker Meeting
Inspired by Global Link’s Documenting Dissent project, the children learned about Lancaster’s involvement in the transatlantic slave trade from published sources and by asking questions of Professor Alan Rice. The children visited the Slave Trade Memorial and decided to make a banner to express some of their reactions to what they had learned.
The banner will find a permanent home in Lancaster Friends Meeting House.
