IHRC will be joined by academic Kwame Nimako next Wednesday on 19 October to discuss his new book ‘The Dutch Atlantic: Slavery, Abolition and Emancipation’ (co-written with Glenn Willemsen). The book highlights the Dutch involvement in the Atlantic slave trade and how the European countries created and expanded laws that perpetuated colonisation.
The event will be broadcast live on IHRC.TV from 18.30 – 20.30 BST (GMT +1) on Wednesday 19 October and the books will be available for a 15% discount on the night.
Admission is free. To book a place please call 02089044222 or email email@example.com, or leave your name and details in store.

‘This erudite history of Dutch slavery, revolts, abolition efforts, and emancipation is told from the underside of Dutch life. … [It is] a breathtaking portrait of an uncomfortable history, an agonizing story to be told and never forgotten.’
Entry is free to book a place please call 020 8904 4222 or email firstname.lastname@example.org, or leave your name and details in store.

“And what reason have you that you should not fight in the way of Allah and of the weak among the men and the women and the children, (of) those who say: Our Lord! Cause us to go forth from this town, whose people are oppressors, and give us from Thee a guardian and give us from Thee a helper.”
