Abolition of Slavery Exhibit

Held at the National Museum of Trinidad and Tobago in 2007, this exhibit marked the 200th anniversary of the abolition of the slave trade in the British Empire, and the emancipation of slaves in Trinidad and Tobago. Aiming to highlight this important aspect of Trinidad and Tobago’s history, the exhibit featured watercolours of Trinidad’s early slave plantation society by Richard Bridgens, together with a variety of objects and historical documents pertaining to the period of the abolition.
