"...this campaign is not requesting a favour for a marginal section of society. The history of how we came to be this nation is a history for us all." - Afua Hirsch, The Guardian

The inspiration for our work came from a schoolgirl of African heritage who asked her teacher "where is our history?" Over 200 years after the passing of the Abolition of the Slave Trade Act, there is nothing to commemorate the millions of men, women, and children who endured such injustice because of the colour of their skin.

Our memorial has been beautifully designed by the sculptor Les Johnson and will be erected in Hyde Park. The design can be explored in the page photos. The sculpture has been specially designed to welcome and engage the visually impaired and wheelchair users so that all can learn about this history.

We need to raise a total of £4 million to build this important memorial.

Please support us by giving generously and signing the petition on our website. Thank you.
