International Day for the Remembrance of the Slave Trade and its Abolition – 23 August
Slavery may have been abolished centuries ago, but its aftereffects remain in the form of social and economic inequalities even today. From the Black Lives Matter movement to Taking a Knee, a spotlight has been put on the gross inequalities of life as a person of African descent across the world. This day aims to connect the history of the slave trade with the realities of today.
