Ending Indenture in the British Empire: the ‘quiet abolition’

It’s a century since indenture, the system which immediately replaced slavery in parts of the former British Empire, was ended. Dr Maria del Pilar Kaladeen has been working on a number of events to commemorate the centenary of the abolition of indenture in the British Empire—as she has termed it ‘the quiet abolition.’ Quiet because it’s been a challenge to engage the public with this commemoration, as the history of indenture has been so little known.

See Dr del Pilar Kaladeen’s blogpost here – there are links from there to her research and to an exhibition she curated in London, as well as to a conference to be held next week at Senate House in London.
