Time to stamp out anti-Blackness
23 August is International Slavery Remembrance Day for the victims of the African Holocaust / Transatlantic Slave Trade. The date is significant as it is the date the Haitian Revolution began. This was the largest and most successful uprising of enslaved Africans led by former enslaved African Toussaint L’Ouverture. The revolution saw Haiti emerging as the first Black republic in the world, and the second nation state in the western hemisphere (after the United States) to win its independence from a European power, defeating Napoleon Boneparte and his army.
On Saturday 18/08/18 it’s time to remember the victims of the African Holocaust, their resilience and their resistance as well as those still enslaved and those harvested for their organs in Libya and other North African countries today.
Join us in a global day of remembering and standing up to anti-Blackness, a global issue which has caused and still causes countless deaths around the world.
The African Holocaust is the birthplace of anti-Black thought, it’s time to remember where it started to so we can begin to stamp it out once and for all. On 18/08/18 we’ll be hosting our annual National Memorial in London’s Trafalgar Square from 1-4pm.
If you want to live in a world without racism get your Remembrance Sankofa and stand with us on 18/08/18.
