Gloria Daniel and Ruth Hecht have two very personal connections to the slave trade.

Gloria’s great-great-grandfather was owned by Ruth’s great-great-great-great-uncle, Thomas Daniel.

Daniel, a wealthy sugar merchant, is remembered at Bristol Cathedral, and the pair met for the first time to discuss their mixed legacies.
