Lifeline Expedition
© 2007





The March of the Abolitionists and the seven year series of Lifeline Expedition journeys around the North Atlantic world ended in the City of London on July 11th.

On this website you can find reports on both stages of the March of the Abolitionists – the Meridian Walk and the Sankofa Walk. There are also photographs from both walks as well as curriculum materials and two short films in the downloads section.

We will not be taking any major initiatives now until 2009, but this website will keep you informed of future developments.
