Exhibition | Nigerian Voices Against Slavery (July 8 to August 10)

Join us at this insightful exhibition as we delve into the untold stories of local voices against slavery in Nigeria. While the history of abolition in Africa often highlights the contributions of European colonial governments and missionaries, it is essential to recognise the of local Africans against slavery. Anti-slavery movements across Nigeria engaged diverse ethnic groups and were deeply entrenched in the region's cultural fabric, showcasing a profound and widespread disdain for the inhumane practice. These movements were not mere reactions to external pressures but emanated from a deep-seated commitment to freedom within the local communities.The remarkable contributions of African abolitionists, particularly those in Nigeria, offer a critical yet underexplored perspective on the broader abolitionist movement. By acknowledging and celebrating the pivotal role of these local champions, we aim to present a holistic portrayal of the history of abolition and highlight the significant impact of indigenous voices in shaping a more just and equitable society. Join us in honoring their legacy and expanding our understanding of this transformative chapter in history.
