Liverpool and the slave trade

Anthony Tibbles

An investigation of the City often called the 'capital of the slave trade': What does the dubious accolade mean? How accurate is it? - By understanding the detailed operation of the trade we can also see how Liverpool became so important as a slaving port and what it meant for the development of the town and its prosperity.

This is a part of the Mondays at One lecture series on slavery.  The other lectures in this series were as follows:
      The emancipation movement in Britain  
      The US Perspective: From the Civil War to the Civil Rights Movement
      Contemporary Slavery: A case of mistaken identity?
