Mary Prince (KS2)
Museum of London
Meet Mary in 1831 London, when the anti-slavery movement published her life story. Born into slavery, as a child she was the 'pet' of a rich white girl and as an adult she suffered hard labour working as a field slave. Although in England she was free, she could not return to her husband in the Caribbean because she would become enslaved again. Explore the galleries and discuss the legacies of the transatlantic slave trade.
