Museum of Slavery and Freedom
M ō S a F London is the idea of a small community group based in Deptford, South East London. Our goal is to establish a Museum of Slavery and Freedom (M ō S a F) on the site of the old Royal Naval Dockyard here on bank of the River Thames. The museum will focus on the role of Deptford, London and the Royal Navy in the triangular slave trade and demonstrate how the UK grew rich as a result of their activities. It will celebrate the way freedom from the trade was won and explore how the legacy of slavery lives on today.
This museum will put today’s Deptford on the map, enrich future generations of national and international visitors and create a space of which our mixed heritage community can be proud.
In common with many other arts organisations, the MoSaF committee is scaling down its activities during the Covid crisis. We will keep the situation under review and start up again as soon as possible.
