History Sideshow #03: The Queen of the Okoyong

Unearthed

05-08-2021 • 26 minutos

Welcome to the History Sideshow! This week I take a look at Mary Slessor who sailed for Nigeria in 1876 - but should she be revered today in the light of damage caused by white-saviourism and voluntourism?

I'll also address something quite personal to me, including the responsibility that comes with broadcasting history programs in the wake of TV historian Neil Oliver's damaging claims, as well as news of the third season of Unearthed - coming next week! - plus, this week in history news!
