Burton, E, Dresser, M, Greenacre, F and Otele, O (2016) Talking Colston: memory, commemoration and Bristol's slave legacy. In: The BIRTHA Annual Debates, 5 May 2016, The Station, Bristol, UK.
Edward Colston is remembered for his philanthropy and memorialised in Bristol through the names of schools and a concert hall and by a statue in the city centre. But in recent years, a growing awareness of Colston’s involvement in slavery and the slave trade has made this celebration seem problematic in a multicultural and multi-ethnic city such as Bristol.
