City Marks Slavery Remembrance

SLAVERY Remembrance Day was marked with music, reflection and dance in Liverpool.

After a multi-faith act of reflection at St Nicholas's parish church on Saturday, the focus switched to Otterspool Promenade where there were art and craft workshops, cultural food stalls and handling items linked to the slave trade.

Chief Angus Chukuemeka lead a libation, a traditional African ceremony calling on ancestors to bless the event.

Music and dance performances were held in the new International Slavery Museum.
