Did you know, today is International Day for the Remembrance of the Slave Trade and its Abolition? Some of our Penna family members - Louise Darkwah, Leah James and Alexis Curtis-Harris - joined our Penna Podcast to have an open and honest discussion around the ongoing impact of the slave trade on Black communities both inside and outside the world of work. Take a listen and share your thoughts below the line.
