Actor at Georgian House protest


Photograph of an actor called Charles Dumas, a descendent of an Afro-Caribbean slave. The photograph shows Dumas at the Georgian House – a period house open to the public as a museum. He was part of a group of actors from the Bristol Old Vic Theatre. They were protesting about the limited information provided in the house about the involvement of the Pinney family in the slave trade. Pinney was a sugar merchant who owned a sugar plantation in Nevis, in the Caribbean. He built and lived in the Georgian House, in Great George Street, Bristol.
