200 Years on from the abolition of the Slave Trade March 25, 2007

Posted by Winter in race matters.

We’re still feeling the affects and modern day slavery is thriving.

Actor and playwright Kwame Kwei-Armach has a good piece in the Guardian online: From Ian to Kwame – Why Slavery Made me Change my Name.

That was a wonderful experiential piece. I just wish that everyone who “finds” themselves wouldn’t choose the same bloody name. Do you know how many Kwames I’ve encountered? It’s a problem of pronunciation, really. Our anglicized african tongues just can’t get around some of the more fascinating names. So, we end up choosing and REchoosing the same ones. 😉
