ISM Is Go!

Excellent news. The Heritage Lottery Fund have agreed to fund the International Slavery Museum to the tune of £1.5m. Apparently the regional committee was very happy with the progress made and commended the project. Next stop will be the actual opening of the display galleries on 23 August next year, to coincide with Slavery Remembrance Day.

This preview graphic shows part of the gallery that will look at life in Africa, before the slaves were taken across the Atlantic to the Americas. The house you can see is a domestic Igbo house of the time.
