THE DARK was the central part of DARK HERITAGE, which toured the UK over 2007 / 2008 to mark the Bicentenary of the Abolition of the Slave Trade Act and is now the central part of Dark Heritage London - our plan for a permanent national slavery resource in London. Please go to the Dark Heritage London website for more details of how you could help us to achieve this.



How can you, who have felt the oppressor's hard hand,

Who for freedom, all perils would brave,

How can you enjoy peace, while one foot of your land

Is disgraced by the toil of a slave!

Extract from American Independency by Edward Rushton
