This Is Slavery
2016
In 1831 Mary Prince, the first black woman published in Britain, wrote 'This is Slavery. Know the Truth.' Her work brought the horror of slavery vividly to life and played an important role in the abolition of slavery two years later.

Fires Modern consists of 18 histories from the progressive movement including reference to black history, the history of the women's rights movement, fascism in Britain, racism, murder and contemporary references to social inclusion movements like LGBT+ and modern race equality.
