Description

Every Friday afternoon at 1pm, Clifton House will be moving their unique tours online, allowing you to find out more about life in the Poor House, or the stories surrounding some of those buried in Clifton Graveyard. Every week will be a different topic.

Belfast and the Slave Trade, 4 December, 1- 2pm

This talk will examine Belfast and its ties to slavery, from those who owned Plantations and enslaved people, to the West Indian merchants who benefited from what Henry Joy termed “the infamous traffic in the flesh and bone of man”. It will also cover the abolitionist movement and those who dedicated their lives to the abolition of slavery.
