The International Slavery Museums hands-on workshop introduces students to fundamental aspects of transatlantic slavery, Liverpool’s involvement in the trade, and its impact on the lives of those affected.

This workshop will enable students to get hands-on with museum objects, using these unique resources to investigate the connection between the transatlantic slave trade and some of its legacies, from racial segregation in the past to Black Lives Matter today.

As students progress through the activities, they will explore sources that celebrate inspiring examples of individuals and communities who have created positive change. A member of the museum learning team will also help empower students to discuss race and racism in an appropriate and responsible way.

Please note this workshop is suitable for Year 5 & 6 only.
