The November episode from Between, Across, and Through is
During the 19th Century, Britain still held onto many of its colonial territories. But throughout the world, the abolishment of slavery was spreading fast. In the Caribbean and at home, amelioration became a heated topic, used both by abolitionists and slave-owners, to advocate for their interests and decide the future of the sugar-cane industry and the people bound to it.
Today, Professor Kevin Lewis O’Neill is joined by Professor Padraic Scanlan, from the University of Toronto.
In this episode, we will discuss how the implementation of amelioration policies did not intend to end racism against newly freed people in the Caribbean.
