Next Steps for Cromford Mill Exhibition…

14th July 2017

Cotton Workshop

The Slave Trade Legacies family gathered together at College Street Centre to discuss the next steps for the exhibition at Cromford Mill.

We had a history presentation on the Mount Pleasant estate, Carriacou, which has links to the Strutt family of Belper. Cotton was picked and produced by enslaved labour from Mount Pleasant was used in their mill.

In the afternoon we discussed images of slavery and cotton plantations for the exhibition. The volunteers then went on to produce some creative responses from the presentation of our own.
