It’s surprsing how little the Dutch’s involvement in the Transatlantic Slave Trade is talked about considering that they trafficked an estimated half a million enslaved Africans during that time! This episode throws up a lot of interesting questions about how we regard cultural traditions in a modern context where race and racism are concerned. We talk fine art, golden carriages and black face in this bite-sized look at black history in the Netherlands.
