Protected: Decolonising our Cities: How Lancaster is Confronting its Slave Trade Legacy
As part of this year's Local and Community History Month, we've been focusing on what our local areas choose to celebrate and remember. Two years ago, this very topic was put in the national spotlight in the wake of the Black Lives Matter protests as many towns and cities have statues/memorials dedicated to former slave traders.
One of our digital content placements, Chloe, investigates how her local city, Lancaster, has dealt with its previous involvement in the slave trade and how much progress has been made over the last two years.

As part of our climate change themed #TakeoverDay, we interviewed Ruth Knight, English Heritage's Head of Climate and Sustainability, to hear what she gets up to day-to-day, and what English Heritage is doing to tackle climate change.

Most of the books have been shared on Instagram as part of the Shout Out Loud Book Club, but we wanted to give you a place to find them all in one place.
