Soul singer Mica Paris hits out at big firms who profited from slavery.
Paris think big firms should apologise to black people worldwide for their part during slavery.
Mica visited plantations in Memphis, Tennessee, as part of a BBC gospel documentary with fellow chart star Stormzy.
She said: “It made me angry, like a Jewish person going to visit Auschwitz.
“This is why, as black people, we need that acknowledgement, for JP Morgan to come out and say, ‘Yeah we benefitted from you, you know we need to say sorry’.
“It needs to happen. Just like we had the Nuremberg trials, we need that.”
JP Morgan, America’s biggest bank, did apologise in 2005 for its subsidiaries’ part in the slave trade 200 years ago, admitting that it owned hundreds of slaves as loan collateral.
The predecessors of Citibank and Bank of America are among other US giants that benefited from slavery, according to a separate BBC report.
London-born Mica, 50, was distraught after viewing images of a boat used for bringing slaves from Africa and learning about the history of Black Americans.
“It traces my roots from when I started in church,” she said.
