Prince Charles is rallying for the history of the transatlantic slave trade of African people to be taught to students in Britain as widely as the Holocaust, reported The Independent.
As per the outlet, a royal source close to the Prince of Wales, the future monarch, revealed that he wants to bridge the gap in Britons’ knowledge about the abhorrent history of trafficking of African people.
The source said: “Charles has noted that at a national level, we know and learn at school all about the Holocaust. That is not true of the transatlantic slave trade.”
The insider continued: “There’s an acknowledgement that it needs to happen.”
The source further said that while Prince Charles does not intend to reshape education policy, he is keen for the public to be better educated about that particular history.
The comments come after Prince Charles expressed his sorrow over the suffering caused by the slave trade during his opening speech at the Commonwealth summit in Rwanda.
