The Group

We are a small informal group of researchers operating under the umbrella of Devon Development Education at Exeter Community Centre. We are interested in investigating the historic links between Devon and transatlantic slavery. The mission statement for our group is shown here.

Introductory papers

For a general introduction to the topic of Devon’s link with slavery, see three papers produced by Lucy MacKeith:

Her 2003 booklet ‘Local Black History: A Beginning in Devon

Her paper 'Unravelling Devon Involvement in Slave-ownership', presented at the 2015 UCL workshop

Her PowerPoint paper From the Margins to the Middle that she presented at the Hidden Histories Seminar, held in Plymouth in 2016 and the recording of her talk
