If you are wondering why there has been an upsurge in articles and media coverage about the slave trade then you definately need to read this post.

This sunday marks the 200th anniversary of the British Parliament's abolition of the slave trade act in 1807. However the 1833 Slavery Abolition Act outlawed slavery itself throughout the British Empire and slaves did not gain their final freedom until 1838.

Deputy Prime Minister John Prescott said Britain is to hold an annual commemoration day to remember its role in the slave trade, as well as the fight to end it. He told The Guardian daily that he expected the day would be sometime in June and said it could provide an opportunity for the country to consider how it could help modern day Africa. Prescott also stated: “Like the Holocaust, we are learning to talk about the slave trade more openly and more honestly."

The Archbishops of Canterbury and York are asking people to take time this coming weekend to reflect on the horrors of the transatlantic slave trade and use the anniversary of the Act for its abolition as a springboard for taking action to tackle the impact of the trade's legacies today, including examples of human trafficking and oppression across the globe.

Events are being held this weekend to commemorate the abolishment, in fact tomorrow I will be visiting the “Passage of Time – Uncovering the Untold Histories of the Transatlantic Slave Trade” event held at the British Library in conjunction with the BBC.

Other events that are taking place can be viewed by clicking here.
