King’s College London and Reparations for Slavery
10 October 2019, 16:15 to 18:00 Please note: this event has passed
Strand Campus, London
Join the Department of History at King's this Black History Month with Professor Richard Drayton, who talks about the issues of reparations for slavery on Thursday 10 October.
A substantial amount of wealth derived from slavery in the Caribbean underpinned the foundation of King’s College London in 1829. Should King’s follow the example of the University of Glasgow, which in August 2019 announced it would commit 20 million pounds to reparations? What are the arguments for reparations? In what creative ways might King’s meet this challenge and acknowledge its debts to the Caribbean, Africa and the African diaspora?
