- He came down from Highgate thro' Hackney & Holloway towards London
- Till he came to old Stratford, & thence to Stepney & the Isle
- Of Leutha's Dogs, thence thro' the narrows of the River's side,
- And saw every minute particular, the jewels of Albion, running down
- The kennels of the streets and lanes as if they were abhorr'd
- Every Universal Form was become barren mountains of moral
- Virtue, and every Minute Particular harden'd into grains of sand
- And all the tendernesses of the soul cast forth as filth and mire.
- Jerusalem by William Blake
I attended the 1807 Commemorated: Remembering and representing the abolition of the slave trade, September 18th 19th 2008. This brought together museum practitioners, academics and community representatives to explore how the bicentenary of the abolition of the slave trade was marked in Britain. We considered what this commemoration means to "Britain" and how it impacts upon issues of identity, ethnicity and social justice. It included important contributions from the USa and Australia.
I was a representative of the Tower Hamlets African and Caribbean Mental Health Organisation. (See THACMHO.)

Wiki ExperiencesI have been an editor on wikipedia for several years. I have found it very useful: sometimes I have started a page on a topic about which I know very little, to find all sorts of information put up there by other people. I hope I can have some similar experiences on WikiEducator
