Join Adam Matthew Digital and guest speakers for this upcoming webinar exploring Britain’s historic connection to its former Caribbean colonies. We’ll be taking a closer look at what British colonial records can tell us about the everyday lives of the people that called the islands home, the rise and decline of the transatlantic slave trade, and consider the region through the lens of one family’s history spanning both the Caribbean and Britain.
