Being Human Exhibition Leaflet

Unlocking the Secrets of Slavery and Abolition is an exhibition exploring the British and Foreign School Society’s (BFSS) role in the introduction of elementary education to enslaved and freed children in the British West Indies during and after slavery, showcasing documents and artefacts from the BFSS archives held by Brunel University London Archive.

The exhibition is part of a UK-wide series of events on the theme of ‘Secrets and Discoveries’ hosted by the Being Human Festival of Humanities. The Festival is sponsored by the London School of Advanced Study, in partnership with the Arts & Humanities Research Council and The British Academy.
