Liverpool Slavery Trail - Local Attractions

 

"Use your eyes, look up and all around you - there are traces of the city's history all over the place."

These were the words of tour guide to Liverpool's History of Slavery Tour, a fascinating snapshot of a bygone era that some might rather forget .

Eric Lynch is the oral historian and creator of The Slavery History Tour on one of his fascinating walks back in time.

Eric Lynch is a black scouser, an active trade unionist though now retired from the council. He left school at the age of 14 and couldn't read and write because in those days it was judged that blacks didn't need such skills.

Eric Lynch is a black scouser, an active trade unionist though now retired from the council. He left school at the age of 14 and couldn't read and write because in those days it was judged that blacks didn't need such skills. Within a few years however, he had taught himself to read and write, partly because of his fascination for the history of Liverpool - he needed to know how things had come about.

This wanderlust and need to know even led him to unsuccessfully stow away on a ship bound for Barbados, but discovered before the sailing he was unceremoniously thrown back to the Liverpool shore. And so Eric learnt about Liverpool life and its history. So it is fitting that someone who has moved around the city, explored it's history and worked in bastions of white employment should now be our guide for the city and its connections with slavery.

 

If you don't know where you come from you can't know where you are going to. This aphorism pertinent to individuals, is also relevant to cities. Without knowing about the past we will not be able to shape the future and those who are ignorant of their past remain in a fog of misunderstanding.
