We exist to commemorate the millions of enslaved Africans who lost their lives, liberty, and identity through the slave trade. We are building an educational memorial to honour them and their contribution to Britain.
"...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. 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.
