For the past two years or so, Dr Susanne Seymour has been working with a local community group under the Nottingham Slave Trade Legacies initiative. A key element of this work has been to make links to the transatlantic slave trade more visible in heritage sites.
One strand has been funded through the AHRC Global Cotton Connections project (https://globalcottonconnections.wordpress.com/), but the community group also secured its own Heritage Lottery Fund grant. This small project – Slave Trade Legacies: The Colour of Money (https://slavetradelegacies.wordpress.com/projects/the-colour-of-money/), has now been selected as a finalist in the National Lottery Heritage awards. The winner (from the 7 shortlisted finalists) is decided by public vote.
The press release below gives more information on the project and Susanne’s connection with it: http://www.nottingham.ac.uk/news/pressreleases/2016/july/give-your-vote-to-nottingham-slave-trade-legacies-project.aspx
