Zanzibar's Story: Remembering the Past, Securing the Future.
Its connection with the abolition of slavery, Zanzibar Cathedral is a World Heritage Site. Until recently it was in a very poor state of repair, with serious structural problems, however, with the help of the US Ambassador, the World Monument Fund, the European Union and partners in the UK and USA, they have raised over a million Euros to complete this work - nothing short of a miracle! The external work of restoration is almost complete and the internal work is well under way. They are also creating an anti-slavery exhibition to educate people about slavery - both historically and in its present forms.
The World Monument Fund has created this exhibition for the UK, to show the restoration work and Zanzibar Cathedral's link with slavery.
The Anglican community is hosting the exhibition at Ely Cathedral Please also take the time to watch the UN video about Senegal. Below.
