Sally-Anne has published extensively on the History of Art and at the time of interview was the Head Curator for the National Tuest. In this capacity she co-edited a report tracing where slave trade compensation money went and which of the estates, now managed by the trust, benefited. We also discussed the way in which the heritage industry tells the stories of the past and how that informs our view of the present.
“Only by honestly and openly acknowledging and sharing those stories can we do justice to the true complexity of past, present and future, and the sometimes-uncomfortable role that Britain, and Britons, have played in global history since the sixteenth century or even earlier.”
In a time when opinions are presented as facts, properly researched and evidenced historical facts are all the more important. We bring them to you, here.
