Weʼre raising £21,000 to install a memorial to commemorate the slaves who lived, died and were buried in Liverpool, interred without a marker or without their names
I am fundraising to ensure that a memorial to the slaves who lived, died and were buried in Liverpool is realised. Many of these individuals were not only interred without a marker, but even without their names. For example, on 23 Sept 1778 “A Black boy belong’d to Captn Penny” was buried at what is now St John’s Gardens. Although we do not know many of their names these individuals deserve to be respectfully commemorated.
