Legacies of Slavery
You are invited to explore how the Legacies of Slavery continue to affect all of life today. Resources on this site include Bible Studies, Films, Books, Papers, Prayers and Theology. These cover topics like the History of Slavery and Colonisation, White Privilege, Restorative Justice and how we can begin to build more conscious, just, and anti-racist communities.
The United Reformed Church is determined to explore the Legacies of Slavery. The transatlantic slave trade was one of the largest forced migrations of human beings across the globe. Race-based chattel slavery, as practiced in the Atlantic world, remains one of the ugliest forms of exploitation of other human beings ever invented. The legacy of that dismal history continues to impact enormously on people around the world today.
