Bristol was heavily involved in the transatlantic slave trade, and reaped the rewards of plantation profits. Teachers Richard Kennett and Tom Allen discuss how they have worked with six other teachers to create a new textbook on this previously overlooked element of the city’s history, and its impact on Bristol today.


Richard Kennett and Tom Allen are co-authors (along with others) of Bristol and Transatlantic Slavery : Origins, Impact and Legacy (Bristol Books, 2021)
