This third instalment of the “History, Heritage and Identity” Symposium pivots on the painful history of European plunder and deprivation of the Caribbean by the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade and Plantation Economy, to consider contemporary opportunities for profitable UK-Caribbean Trade and Business in the Post-Brexit Environment.

This important conversation, facilitated by African-Caribbean Churches in the United Kingdom in collaboration with The University of the West Indies, is primarily for Diaspora audiences in London, Birmingham and across the British Midlands. Among the speakers at this Symposium are leading academics and business owners and entrepreneurs engaged in business in the Caribbean and the UK, as well as the voices and perspectives of leaders and members of the UK Church community.
