on Zoom

The 26th African Remembrance Day on 1 Aug. solemnly commemorates the African victims of slavery , reflecting on its poisonous legacies.

The 26th African Remembrance Day (ARD) will be held online on Zoom at 2.00pm - 3.30pm on Saturday, 1 August 2020.

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. It is thus a day for reflection, healing and renewal of the global African family

The theme of this year's ARD, 'UCL's Legacies of British Slave-Ownership Archive', builds on the momentum created by Black Lives Matter in the struggle against the structural racism that is a continuing legacy of slavery and colonialism. How was Britain enriched by slavery? Why does this matter today? What options exist for repair and restitution?

These issues will be addressed by keynote speaker Prof. Matthew J. Smith, the newly appointed Director of the Centre for the Study of the Legacies of British Slave-Ownership at UCL.
