I am delighted that Alan Rice is coming to speak this Saturday to the Public History group. His talk ‘Making public forgotten black histories 1750-2014: From ghostly hands to children’s memorials on slave graves’ draws both upon his extensive research and writing but also his engaged practice in Lancaster, the fourth largest (former) slave port in Britain.

We included an extract from his most recent book in the Public History Reader. The book Creating Memorials. Building Identities is well worth reading in its entirety.

Further details of the seminar are available through this link
