The Middle Passage


I’m not going to write much about this but right now I’m researching some work on slavery and I came across this short clip from the International Slavery Museum, which shows very well what these innocent Africans went through. This clip moved me so much I had to share it. The website I found it from is limehouseheritage.com

  1. Hi Hannah,
    As the designer and director of the ‘Middle Passage sequence’ for the National Slaver Museum I was delighted to read that you found the sequence very moving – exactly the effect I hoped it would have. Having spent a considerable amount of time researching the Middle Passage, I was keen to ensure that the sequence conveyed the true horror, fear and distress the passage caused to the people incarcerated – rather than it just be a cold, factual account dealing in numbers and dates.
    So thank you once again.

      Thank you for your feedback 😀
      I felt that your work showed the truth of how it would have been. Every thing from the sounds and the emotions. I truly felt that I was a slave experiencing it with them. Great work.
