This event will take the form of a discussion between Prof Marjoleine Kars (author of the recently published Blood on the River: a chronicle of mutiny and freedom on the Wild Coast) and Dwayne Benjamin (Senior Lecturer, History, University of Guyana). Prof Kars’ account draws on material found in 900 interrogation transcripts of those involved – a rare opportunity to hear the voices of the enslaved alongside the enslavers. As is customary, there will be an opportunity for questions and comments at the end of the discussion.

There are short podcasts about 1763 and maps of the Dutch colony of Berbice available on our website: https://www.morayhousetrust.com/events/1763-rebellion-or-revolution/

More background material later.
