Liverpool Echo: University of Liverpool accepts slavery roots after new database of links revealed

Liverpool Echo: University of Liverpool accepts slavery roots after new database of links revealed. “The University of Liverpool has acknowledged the role that proceeds of slavery played in its early beginnings as a group of independent researchers prepare to release information about its links to the notorious trade. The database, which has been put together by the Liverpool Black History Research Group based at the Kuumba Imani centre in Toxteth, explores the relationship between prominent slave traders and one of the University of Liverpool’s forerunner organisations, the Liverpool Royal Institution.” The database will be released next year.
