Wednesday March 25 2015 was the United Nations International Day of Remembrance of the Victims of Slavery and Transatlantic Slave Trade. We are pleased to announce that the ‘Ark of Return’ Memorial was unveiled as part of the days events. The ‘Ark of Return’ is a memorial that will be permanently on display at the Plaza at United Nations Headquarters in New York. This memorial honors lives of those who died as a result of slavery or experienced the horrors of the transatlantic slave trade. Please see below for some photographs from the unveiling.
