Breezeblog [1] links to “a website that tracks the forced and unpaid labour that goes into producing the things we take for granted” and makes the point that “being aware of the impression left by your slavery footprint may be the most important of all”, while Caribbean Book Blog [2] notes that “[those] charged with erecting a permanent monument at the United Nations to honour the victims of slavery and the transatlantic slave trade have launched an international competition for the design of the structure.”
