Slavery by Another Name

“What’s fascinating about Green Cottenham is the fact that he isn’t special. He’s not well known. He’s not a historical figure of importance. But that is part of the beauty. He is representative of all of the nameless, faceless people who disappeared during this timeframe, who were deemed to be of no value. And then you realise the value isn’t necessarily in being important. We all have interesting stories. We all have a life story worth telling.”
