The Pompey Museum of Slavery & Emancipation is accommodated in the Vendue House- a historic marketplace where along with other commodities, African slaves were sold during the 18th and 19th century.
The museum is named after Pompey who was a brave slave whole lived on the Rolle Plantation in Exuma and revolted against slavery and his transfer to another island- something that was a rare incident in those times. Today, the museum showcases the slavery times through its exhibits and details the days when slavery of Africans was common and when emancipation of the slave was a struggle. The seemingly pleasant pink building forms a contrasting place for a subject so dark but a walk inside and you are swept back to the 17th and 18th century in a time machine.
Come here to see just how the stories of slavery unfolded in Bahamas and how the revolt shaped the world as we know it today!
