"The Abyss: Nantes in the Atlantic Slave Trade and Colonial Slavery, 1707 - 1830
The Nantes Museum of History in collaboration with the Foundation for the Memory of Slavery offers you the opportunity to retrace the slave trade past of the city of Nantes.
This exhibition revisits the history of the first slave port in France between the 17th and 19th centuries by approaching the subject from a new angle.
