The Bluecoat in Liverpool

For anyone who couldn’t make ‘Bluecoat 300: Charity, Philanthropy and the Black Atlantic’ last year or who wants to find out more about the events held, a full report has recently been published online by Sophie Jones of the University of Liverpool. The one-day symposium and series of related public events marked the Bluecoat’s tercentenary and the tenth anniversary of the International Slavery Museum by exploring connections between charity, philanthropy and the black Atlantic in Liverpool. The event was principally organised by English lecturer Michael Morris, with LJMU as chief sponsor. The full report can be read here.
