Remember Slavery: Say It Loud” Exhibit at UN Information Centres
In collaboration with the United Nations, New York
The exhibition, “Remember Slavery: Say It Loud”, which was produced in collaboration with the United Nations Remember Slavery Programme, has been spotted all over the world. So far the UN’s Education Outreach Section has generously shared with us images from Bujumbura, Geneva, Harare, Lagos, Lomé, Nairobi, New Delhi, Minsk and Yaoundé! The exhibit was also shown in Antananarivo.
“Remember Slavery: Say It Loud”, which was translated into 8 languages (Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Kiswahili, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish) is officially international!
Below are all the posters in their various languages. Legally these posters cannot be printed or displayed without written permission from the United Nations.
This exhibit was displayed at the United Nations in March 2018 to mark the International Day of Remembrance of the Victims of Slavery and the Transatlantic Slave Trade, observed each year on 25 March. The observance offers an opportunity to remember those who suffered and died at the hands of the brutal slavery system and recognise the contributions that people of African descent have made around the world.
The Remember Slavery Programme, managed by the Education Outreach Section of the United Nations Department of Global Communications, was established by the General Assembly in 2007 to further remembrance of and learning about the causes, consequences, lessons and legacy of the transatlantic slave trade and slavery. It also aims to raise awareness of the dangers of racism and prejudice today, through activities held by the Programme in New York and around the world by the global network of United Nations Information Centres and educational materials produced throughout the year.
