Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, has given his full backing to recent plans for a slavery museum which is hoped to positively challenge the increasing levels of racism in the capital post Brexit.
The proposal comes from the Fabian Society, who argues that the introduction of a slavery museum could address head on discrimination faced by London’s black and ethnic minority population by dispelling of the historical myths and stereotypes often unfairly fixed on them.
Supporting the reasoning behind the proposal, Khan said: “It is right that all Londoners see themselves and their history reflected in our city’s museums and cultural institutions. Learning more about the uncomfortable nature of our city and our nation’s role in the transatlantic slave trade can serve to deepen our understanding of the past and strengthen our commitment to fight racism and hatred in all its forms.”
