Zong passes under Tower Bridge

Spent lunchtime today watching replica slave ship Zong pass through Tower Bridge, London, to berth for a week or two as a floating slavery exhibition. The ship, used to make the film Amazing Grace that has recently been released, has been hired for this purpose by the Centre for Contemporary Ministry, with some sponsorship by CMS.

It was exciting to see the ship arrive, and I hope to find time to take a look inside.

A couple of short videos if you want to recall the event: the first video is of the Zong approaching tower bridge, escorted by Royal Naval frigate HMS Northumberland, and the second video of the ship passing Tower Bridge.
