Free events exploring slavery past and present

10 February 2011 by Sam

This Saturday you can make a stand for love at the International Slavery Museum, at a free workshop making Valentines’ Day cards with a difference. Our cards are designed to support the anti-trafficking campaign and raise awareness about modern day slavery.

Everyone deserves to be treated as special someone – not as a commodity to be brought and sold. So make a Valentines’ Day card with an anti-trafficking message to send to someone, to support the Stop the Traffik campaign.

More information is on the Special Someone campaign website.

There are also some interesting free lectures coming up as part of Centre for the Study of International Slavery (CSIS) programme. The CSIS is a partnership between the International Slavery Museum and the University of Liverpool, where the lectures take place.

  • Tuesday 15 February: ‘Kara Walker’s vision of American slavery’, Michael Bibler (University of Manchester)
  • Tuesday 29 March: Delia’s Tears: Race, Science and Photography in 19th Century America,  Molly Rogers (University of Warwick) 

Both seminars take place at 5.15pm in Room 401 in the Cypress Building – number 108 on the campus map, available on the university website.
