UN - Slavery Remembrance Day
Today is Slavery Remembrance Day. “For over 400 years, more than 15 million men, women and children were the victims of the tragic transatlantic slave trade, one of the darkest chapters in human history.”
Learn about the Ark of Return, which is the permanent memorial designed by Rodney Leon (a decedent of a former slave) that sits on the grounds of the United Nations headquarters.
