Around Christmas time, I volunteered to be a member of the new Bath and North East Somerset Race Panel, set up in response to the emergence of the Black Lives Matter social movement. It’s taken a while to get going, but we now have agreed a direction of travel.
Bath is a world heritage site: one of our first tasks is to bring into focus some aspects of Bath’s uncomfortable links to wealth generated by the slave trade.
We have agreed our own Terms of Reference, to set a moral and social compass point to guide our path.
Small steps, but we are on our way.
