History shows slavery helped build many U.S. Colleges and universit...

I understand slavery in England was abolished in 1833. It seems that there isn't as much black white racism in England as there is in the U.S.

Was England able to reconcile because of compensation for slave owners? 

The link doesn't say. Were slaves compensated?

The Act provided for compensation for slave-owners. The amount of money to be spent on the compensation claims was set at "the Sum of Twenty Million Pounds Sterling".Under the terms of the Act, the British government raised £20 million (£16.5 billion in 2013 pounds, when calculated as wage values) to pay out in compensation for the loss of the slaves as business assets to the registered owners of the freed slaves. In 1833, £20 million amounted to 40% of the Treasury's annual income or approximately 5% of the British GDP (5% of the British GDP in 2016 was around £100 billion).To finance the compensation, the British government had to take on a £15 million loan, finalised on 3 August 1835, with banker Nathan Mayer Rothschild and his brother-in-law Moses Montefiore. The money was not paid back until 2015...

Hard to think of.

Comment by Stephen on November 18, 2018 at 5:35pm

Yeah on ours too. Its wild to imagine that if it fell during the last Ice age there could have been people who would have seen the flash way over the horizon.

Comment by Mrs.B on November 18, 2018 at 5:30pm

It was on our news.
