"Chasing Freedom: the Royal Navy and the Suppression of the Transatlantic Slave Trade" by Deborah Hodson from the Royal Naval Museum

200 years ago Parliament voted to outlaw the slave trade in Britain. To enforce the act the Royal Navy established a squadron that would patrol the seas of West Africa for the next 60 years, searching and detaining ships, liberating some 150 000 enslaved Africans, playing a pivotal role in the suppression of the international slave trade.
During the talk Deborah Hodson will discuss aspects of life on the West Coast of Africa Station as well as the horrific conditions endured by millions of Africans on the transatlantic crossing. The talk will be illustrated by previously unseen images, archives and artefacts, which have been donated to the Museum following the opening of the special exhibition 'Chasing Freedom: the Royal Navy and the suppression of the transatlantic slave trade' in February.
Deborah Hodson is Learning Manager and Chasing Freedom Project Manager at the Royal Naval Museum, where she has worked since 2005. Prior to that she was at the British Empire and Commonwealth Museum in Bristol.
