Nantes’s role in the slave trade and colonial slavery, 1707-1830

The museum offers an opportunity to hold its collections up to the light and reveal the invisible (but ever-present) traces of the men and women that were victims of the colonial system. Beyond the economic and commercial perspective commonly offered, this exhibition will reveal the complex reality of a city that was so deeply involved in the slave trade.
