Breaking the Silence

KS3: ages 11-14KS4: ages 14-16KS5: ages 16+Website

This extensive website looks at slavery and the slave trade from a number of different perspectives: historical, social, political and economic.

The website focuses on a number of topics, including: Africa before slavery, participation and poverty, life on the plantations, resistance, rebellion, abolition, and modern slavery. There is lots of source material, such as maps, illustrations and first-hand accounts, along with well-researched teaching activities within each topic.

Altogether it is a well organised, useful website, that will enhance any secondary Citizenship or History class focusing on the subject of slavery and its abolition.
