Black History Month

Dates and times

Tuesday 22 October 2019
6:00PM - 7:00PM

In 1870, The Old Country Houses of the Old Glasgow surveyed landed estates around west-central Scotland, sometimes distancing landowners from the origins of their wealth. By examining the connections between chattel slavery and landowners, this lecture situates the estates in transatlantic context.​ Talk by historian Stephen Mullen. Copies of the book will be on display. This is part of our Black History Month Programme.
