Slavery

Honoured to have been able to contribute to the Rijksmuseum’s upcoming Slavery exhibition, a landmark examination of Dutch involvement in slavery and the slave trade during the colonial era, as well as the continuing legacy of that involvement, through the personal stories of ten individuals, ‘people who suffered under the slavery system, people who rose in resistance against it, and people who profited from it’, by translating nine of the fourteen texts in the exhibition catalogue, Slavery: The Story of João, Wally, Oopjen, Paulus, Van Bengalen, Surapati, Sapali, Tula, Dirk, Lohkay.
