Blood Legacy – Alex Renton

Through the story of his own family’s history as slave and plantation owners, Alex Renton looks at how we owe it to the present to understand the legacy of the past. Blood Legacy explores what inheritance has been passed to the descendants of the slave owners and the descendants of the enslaved. He also asks, crucially, how the former – himself among them – can begin to make reparations for the past. ‘In breaking class ranks, Renton has given voice to a long suppressed truth … [an] admirable book’ Observer
