Money, Trade and the Human Experience: Part 2

The abolition of slavery is the first and most significant struggle for justice among that many that have occurred throughout history. As the second lecture in the Melbourne Museum series – Money, trade and the human experience – we will trace the impact of slavery on our contemporary society and investigate ways in which slavery still exists today.
