2007 is the bicentenary of the abolition of the Slave Trade in the British Empire and there are many exhibitions and related events ongoing, in commemoration and remembrance. From Courage to Freedom is one of them. Featuring West African artists El Anatsui, Romuald Hazoume and Owusu-Ankomah, the exhibition is at the October Gallery, London, until 28 April.
