International Day for the Remembrance of the Slave Trade and its Abolition is observed on August 23, every year. This day is observed with the aim of memorialising millions of people who were the victims of the trans-Atlantic slave trade.
August 23 is significant because, during the night of August 22-August 23 in 1791, an uprising started on the island of Saint Domingue (now Haiti). The uprising had set forth events leading to abolition of the transatlantic slave trade.
UNESCO Member States celebrate this day by organizing events and inviting participation from young people, artists, educators and intellectuals.
Slave Trade was the result of affair between imperialism and racism. During those times, racist ideology was a basis for unjust political, social and economic practices which ultimately helped imperial powers in building their economies. Practice of racism and prejudices continue to haunt modern world. Even today, people of colour face discrimination because of stigmatising attitudes and perceptions.
