Repairing the Past: on We Slaves of Suriname

As colonial powers around the world apologise for their role in the slave trade, this event will explore We Slaves of Suriname by Anton de Kom, a fierce indictment of racism and of Dutch colonial rule.

Mitchell Esajas, from the Black Archives in Amsterdam joins novelist and filmmaker Tessa Leuwsha and writer and curator Nicole-Rachelle Moore, to discuss this landmark book, newly translated into English by David McKay, and comparing the Dutch experience to the UK and wider global context.

The event will be chaired by writer Gabriel Gbadamosi, whose latest work, Abolition, is a stage play about the termination of the transatlantic slave trade.

Supported by the Dutch Foundation for Literature and the Embassy of The Kingdom of the Netherlands. Programmed by Modern Culture as part of New Dutch Writing.
