International Day of Remembrance of the Victims of Slavery and the Transatlantic Slave Trade, 25 March

International Day of Remembrance of the Victims of Slavery and the Transatlantic Slave Trade, 25 March | Gullah-Geechee Cultural Heritage | Scoop.it

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.

The annual observance of 25 March as the International Day of Remembrance for the Victims of Slavery and the Transatlantic Slave Trade serves as an opportunity to honour and remember those who suffered and died at the hands of the brutal slavery system, and to raise awareness about the dangers of racism and prejudice today.
