ARD centres around remembrance of the suffering and experiences of millions of African men, women and children who perished in the Middle Passage and plantations economies in the New World. It also provides an opportunity to reflect on the journey of their descendants in the fight for justice and equality.
The theme for the 27th African Remembrance Day (ARD) 2021 is: ‘African Liberation Queens – Ancient and Modern’, which will be explored through two keynote addresses: ‘Fix Your Crown – the Queen Within’ by Christelle Pellecuer & ‘Women leadership and liberation’ by Dr Justina Mutale.
