An 'excellent' chapter in Recovering Scotland's Slavery Past
by David Alston - 12:20 on 24 October 2015
Recovering Scotland's Slavery Past was launched at the Trades Hall, Glasgow, on Thursday evening (22 October 2015). Professor Tom Devine, who has editied and contributed to the volume, spoke of this publication being a turning point in the interpretation of modern Scottish history.
I was delighted to hear Dr Nuala Zahedieh (Director of the Scottish Centre for Diaspora Studies), who gave an overview of the publication to the audience, describe my chapter as 'excellent'.
It is fifteen years since I began to research this topic and this has been a good week!
