Laura Trevelyan, a prominent BBC journalist, has quit her job to become a full-time campaigner for financial reparations for the Caribbean from former colonial powers.
She seeks to ensure that the region receives compensation for the damage inflicted by slavery.
Trevelyan's aristocratic family made amends for their role by publicly apologizing for owning more than 1,000 slaves, and she recently joined them to offer £100,000 as reparations, which would be drawn from her BBC pension payout.
Additionally, she plans to work with other families whose ancestors owned enslaved people in the Caribbean to address the consequences of slavery.
Laura Trevelyan, a former BBC journalist, has left her job to campaign for reparations for the Caribbean, focusing on financial compensation from former colonial powers.
According to The Mirror, she is becoming a "roving advocate" for publicizing the region's fight against slavery.
Trevelyan has stated, "A new chapter is starting for me.
After thirty incredible years at the BBC, I'm leaving tomorrow - to join the growing movement for reparatory justice for the Caribbean.
" Her aristocratic family, who once owned more than 1,000 slaves, recently atoned for their role in the Caribbean slave trade, and Trevelyan joined them in offering £100,000 in reparations.
She seeks to work with other families to promote reparations and aid projects, as noted in The Guardian: "Trevelyan plans to work with figures such as the Labour MP Clive Lewis, who called on Rishi Sunak to enter negotiations with Caribbean leaders on paying reparations for Britain's role in slavery.
" The Voice reports that Trevelyan announced her new path on Twitter, saying she is "joining the growing movement for reparatory justice for the Caribbean."
