Background



In July 2020 the First Minister of Wales appointed a Task and Finish Group to audit public monuments, street and building names in Wales associated with the slave trade and the British Empire and also touching on the historical contributions to Welsh life of people of Black heritage. The objective of the audit is to collect and review the evidence, after which the Group will identify issues for a possible second stage. The Task and Finish Group comprised independent members led by Gaynor Legall and
supported by a project officer and officials in Cadw. SSAP input into the report and you can read it here!
