SLAVERY AND PANDEMICS Masons, Non-Masons, Family and Friends TUESDAY, 9 JUNE 2020 from 19:00-20:30 Pandemics and Slavery and SLAVERY .... What a great presentation by Prof Burnard from the University of Hull Wilberforce Institute of Slavery and Emancipation. We had 56 registered attendees and well over 65 people in total listening in. Here is one of the comments we received. I hope you all enjoyed it and thank you for joining us.
“That was brill, thank you. Very interesting and at a time when I was starting to doubt my knowledge of William Wilberforce, thinking it might have been purely business reasons for abolition, but no 👍🏼👍🏼. Excellent link to pandemics and very interesting to hear of the affect of Europeans on native Americans (which we were aware) but not appreciated that creating the demands for slaves from elsewhere and hence the African trade. Good topic, well done Dean and Barry. Thank you for the inclusion xxx” WHY NOT JOIN US ON OUR NEXT PRESENTATION. Details to follow.
