YOUR TASK IS AS FOLLOWS

There are 21 slides in this presentation. On 18 of them are comments made by the general public of Bristol after they had been around an exhibition showing how the City of Bristol had made a fortune out of slavery.

These comments are how these people interpreted the exhibition. You need to remember that people react to things in different ways and that the exhibition would have had varying effects on everyone who saw it.

Your job is to put these differing responses into categories

YOUR TASK IS AS FOLLOWS

You are going to read each statement and will then decide which of the following categories it belongs to. Each category has a different coloured background, so as soon as you have found a match, change the background colour of the slide to the correct colour. (Go to FORMAT, BACKGROUND, DOWN ARROW BAR, CHOOSE COLOUR, APPLY)

  • About slavery in history = RED
  • About people today = YELLOW
  • About Bristol today = BLUE
  • About Bristol in the past = GREEN
  • About the exhibition = ORANGE
  • About none of these = PURPLE

  • Former colonies renamed themselves. The name of Colston needs replacing with slave names on our streets and buildings.

  • I explained as much as I could to my 3 and 5 year old children. They cried for the black children taken away from their parents and forced to work.

  • Devastating as a new resident of Bristol. I am shocked by my own ignorance, humbled by how much suffering and barbarity built this city’s fortunes.

  • Good to see no mention of the myths about Jews being involved in this horrific trade. It was purely a ‘Christian’ activity.

  • As a black person who has had the advantage of visiting the Transatlantic museum in Liverpool, I felt this exhibition did not have enough information. The fact is it was too polished, tailored to the middle class.

  • A very biased exhibition. There were other Bristolians (than slave traders). What about the non-conformists and Quakers ?
