Slavery Remembrance National Memorial Service
August 21, 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm
On Sunday, 21st August 2016 Slavery Remembrance Ltd shall be holding the UK’s first ever national memorial service to be held in London’s Trafalgar Square to commemorate and honour the victims of the Transatlantic Slave Trade.
The service is also to help promote International Slavery Remembrance Day (23/08).
Join us in telling the world that we:
are proud of our ancestors
we are proud of their resilience
we are proud of their strength
and in a time where racism and racist attacks are on the rise in the UK and globally we want to tell the world that we love being black.
We are the descendants of some of the strongest people on earth and we are proud, and now it’s time we made them proud. So join us at 1pm in Trafalgar Square on August the 21st in honouring our ancestors and showing the world they deserve to be remembered.
We believe unity is our key so we ask that those attending wear the colours symbolising black unity, red, black and green.
This service is for anyone who believes the victims of the Transatlantic Slave Trade deserve to be remembered no matter what race or colour you are, represent. Black lives matter. And don’t forget to wear your slavery remembrance badge, to show the world that you haven’t forgotten.
