Plan Now for International Day for Remembrance of the Slave Trade and its Abolition

Tuesday, August 23 is the International Day for the Remembrance of the Slave Trade and its Abolition. UNESCO encourages all Heritage Sites to participate in this global remembrance. Take this opportunity to share the history of this human trade and its abolishment.

How you as an Individual, Organization, Church, or Heritage Site recognizes this day depends solely on you. The Annapolis Port Marker Committee will join any planned activities held in the City of Annapolis, during this Day of Remembrance. Contact Janice Hayes-Williams to connect. 

UNESCO:

It is time to abolish human exploitation once and for all, and to recognize the equal and unconditional dignity of each and every individual. Today, let us remember the victims and freedom fighters of the past so that they may inspire future generations to build just societies.”
