Reflection On The Trip To The International Slavery Museum
The International Slavery Museum, located in Liverpool, England, is part of the National Museum's Liverpool. It opened in 2007. Its goal is to establish a new international slavery Museum, which will help to understand the history of the transatlantic slave trade and its impact on the modern world.
The International Slavery Museum focuses on the introduction of the Atlantic slave trade rather than slave history. It explores the historical and contemporary impact of the transatlantic slave system. It is the only Museum of this type in the world.
The museum tells why millions of Africans became slaves and the central role played by Liverpool in this process. The museum emphasizes the impact of the trans ocean slave trade on people living in Africa, the Caribbean, North America, South America and Western Europe.
The International Slavery Museum is divided into three exhibition halls, namely, living in West Africa, forced slavery and intermediate voyage, and its impact on today's world. From the exhibition, we can understand the origin, process and impact of the slave trade
