The London, Sugar & Slavery gallery was installed in 2007 through the collaborative efforts of the
Museum of London, community leaders and academics who formed the London, Sugar & Slavery
Advisory Group. Since then, over one million people have visited the gallery.
Ten years on we are inviting you to join us in reflecting and gathering responses to the London,
Sugar & Slavery gallery. With contributions from artists, museum practitioners and emerging
researchers the day will explore the significance of London, Sugar & Slavery; the ways that the
histories of black people are explored in national museums and how these museums engage with
those of African Caribbean descent today.
