Catherine Hall in conversation with Lonnie Bunch

News: Nov 13, 2018

On the 29th October 2018, CCHS UCL organised a lunch time conversation between Lonnie Bunch, visiting the IAS as Director and Founder of the African American Museum of Culture and History in Washington and Catherine Hall, Professor Emerita in History at UCL. Both Lonnie and Catherine are Historians of Slavery with the difference that both slavery and slave ownership existed in America whilst slave owners in Britain gained their wealth from slavery on the plantations of the Caribbean. Their conversation was recorded and is presented here so you can follow the intricacies of a discussion which shows how these histories relate to differences both in the social impact of slavery in America and Britain and how the question of race has been different, and in the case of Britain in particular, many unrecognised aspects when the deeper histories of slave ownership is given full recognition.
