Speak to me, Speke Hall

This experience was developed with artist Peter Kalu as part of his work on the Colonial Countryside.

Artist Peter Kalu and singer songwriter Naomi Kalu provide an artistic response to Speke Hall’s relationship with the slave trade. Peter’s photographs recall Joseph Johnson, an 18th century black activist and milliner. Naomi performs a ballad recalling the role of Richard Watt. He bought the house with income generated by slavery.

Steps: go to the PopupView app on your phone, open it, select the Speak to me, Speke Hall campaign and point your phone at the images below to hear each verse of the ballad.
