International Slavery Museum Postcard

Postcard from the International Slavery Museum, Liverpool. This has a powerful contemporary image from 2009 reflecting back on the struggles to gain freedom.

When we hear about the movement for the abolition of slavery, who are the people we often hear most about?

What do you think is the message the postcard is trying to convey?

How does it do this in style, language and imagery?

How do you feel about the image?

How is the portrayal of the woman different from the ‘Am I not a woman and a sister?’

How is the  image different?
