Event Description


The film is inspired by the 1779 painting of Dido Elizabeth Belle beside her cousin Lady Elizabeth Murray at Kenwood House which was commissioned by their great-uncle, William Murray 1st Earl of Mansfield, then Lord Chief Justice of England.

Very little is known about the life of Dido Belle, who was the illegitimate mixed-race daughter of Mansfield's nephew. She was born in the West Indies and entrusted to the care of Mansfield and his wife.
