Free Screening: Maafa Truth 2007 – Thursday 21st September 2017
September 21, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm
Save for Later
The #Abolition of the #SlaveTradeAct 1807 was an Act of the Parliament of the United Kingdom, which was passed on 25 March 1807. March 2017 is the 210th anniversary of this event.
After the Abolition of the Slave Trade Act 1807, holding previously enslaved people was still legal and no enslaved people were freed by the Act – so the struggle continued. London played a central role in Britain’s involvement in the transatlantic trade in enslaved Africans. Because London was Britain’s major port, ships owned by #London merchants dominated the trade during the 17th and early 18th centuries.
A drop kick to the head of the mainstream coverage of the bicentenary of the abolition of the “Slave Trade” in 2007: this is an uncompromising documentary with contributions from community activists, project workers, teachers, historians and members of the #AfricanBritish business community. #Maafa explodes received ideas about #Britishslavery and presents another #history of the #African holocaust while examining the politics of the British government’s bicentenary celebrations. Screening will be followed by a discussion.
