The Liverpool Slavery History Trail is a fascinating walk back in time.
RECOGNIZE BHM VISIT
Hi Eric, hope you are well? After last years successful trip I'm planning several more visits to the slavery museum in October and wanted to check your availability for the Slavery history trail. Do you have any bookings yet for the weekends in October? The feedback last year was excellent and a lot of people who opted out of the tour were very disappointed when they heard those who attended talking about the walk. Also the dvd was excellent and so much more in depth most certainly a good buy. Please let me know your availability and we'll talk some more later. I'm also planning to invite you to do a presentation in Birmingham based on the DVD so let me know your thoughts on that to please.

"Every January I bring a group of American undergraduate students to Liverpool to learn about its global past. The Slavery History Trail has become an essential component of our itinerary because of the energy and enthusiasm that Eric Lynch brings to this one of a kind city walking tour. With Eric as our guide, my students and I confront the legacies of Liverpool's role in the international slave trade.

Dear Mr Lynch
I've finally recovered from jet lag and wanted to grab a moment to thank you again for the wonderful tour you gave me.
As you'll recall, I have been researching tourism to slave sites around the Atlantic Ocean and visited Liverpool as one of the financial hearts of the transatlantic trade. Your command of historical materials is impressive, and your enthusiasm makes the trip even more fun. I especially appreciated your taking me to the top floor of what had been Martins and then later, Barclay's Bank. Your reminder to “use your eyes not your emotions” is an invaluable piece of advice as I proceed.
Again, my thank you's. I hope our paths will cross again at some point—particularly because I suspect your knowledge of twentieth century black Liverpool history is equally deep and important.

I look forward to hearing from you in due course.
With kind regards.
Thanks Eric for giving Hannah and myself such a fantastic insight into the slave trade and history of Liverpool. Your knowledge and research on the subject were evident and the manner in which you related it provoked a real connection with the past. I could recommend this tour to anyone who wishes to learn more about the stories behind the sites, buildings and people of Liverpool.
All the best - Carey
