In April 2015, 15 year 9 students embarked on a project with International Slavery Museum, Liverpool to commemorate 800 years since the signing of the Magna Carta.
The project took the students to see an exhibition at the British Library on the history of the Magna Carta and at the museum we explored how the Magna Carta has been held up as the first human rights document and quoted by human rights activists at times of wrongful imprisonment. These include Nelson Mandela at the Rivonia trial and Martin Luther King Jr in his ‘Letter from Birmingham jail’. The students also learnt about campaigns on Merseyside that they might not at first have thought were human rights campaigns, such as the rent strikes of the 1970’s, the Docker’s strike of the 1990’s and the ongoing Hillsborough campaign for justice.
The students then worked with stained glass artist Nathalie Hildegarde Liège to design a stained glass window, for display in the martin Luther King Jr building, at the Albert Dock, which captured not only elements of the people and campaigns that they had learnt about, but ideas about freedom, peace, hope and justice. The finished window captures the stories and people that inspired the students, from Malala Yousafzai to Nelson Mandela, Justice for the 96, the abolition of slavery and the meaning behind Ghanaian Adinkra symbols! It also highlighted the laws from the original Magna Carta that are still enshrined in law. Laws that have given inspiration and hope to people across the ages in their darkest hours of despair and loss of hope:
Clauses 39 & 40: The right to trial by jury -
“No free man shall be seized or imprisoned, or stripped of his rights or possessions, or outlawed or exiled, or deprived of his standing in any other way, nor will we proceed with force against him, or send others to do so, except by the lawful judgement of his equals or by the law of the land.
“To no one will we sell, to no one deny or delay right or justice”.
