The legacy of slavery in Bristol

Bristol is a city whose history is bound up with the trans-Atlantic trade, the legacy of which we are continuing to work through today not least in the debate about how the slave owner Edward Colston is memorialised. We are committed to working with others to address contemporary injustices in the city linked to the historic slave trade.

We support the work of Stand Against Racism and Inequality (SARI).


City Conversation III: Making Change Real

Bristol Old Vic, Ujima Radio and the Bristol Post are running a series of important and urgent conversations across the city, responding to the 2017 Runnymede Trust report which stated that Bristol was the most segregated core city in the UK. The third of these conversations takes place on Wednesday 26 September and asks how the city will create realistic action plans for change, who we need to persuade in order to make change happen, and what resources might be required.
