International Slavery Museum will be holding the Dorothy Kuya Slavery Remembrance Lecture, part of this year's Slavery Remembrance Day programme which also marks 10 years since the opening of the museum. Dr Gee Walker - campaigner, educator and founder of the Anthony Walker Foundation, will deliver this year’s keynote speech.
The International Slavery Museum has shared a close relationship with Gee and her family since before its opening in 2007 and named its Anthony Walker Education Centre in memory of her son. It is an honour to have her speak for the Museum's 10th anniversary.
In July 2005 Gee's son Anthony was cruelly murdered in a racially motivated attack in Merseyside. Following Anthony's death, Gee founded the Anthony Walker Foundation for which she is a patron. Gee supports families who have suffered similar loss and speaks publicly about her personal experience, her forgiveness of Anthony's killers and to encourage young people to make better choices.
The keynote speech will be followed by a Q&A session with Gee and her daughters Stephanie and Dominique Walker.
