Background Information

For over 400 years, more than 15 million men, women and children were the victims of the tragic transatlantic slave trade, one of the darkest chapters in human history. Slavery and the transatlantic slave trade were appalling tragedies in the history of humanity because of their abhorrent barbarism and their magnitude, organized nature and their negation of the essence of the victims.

It is almost universally acknowledged that slavery and the slave trade are crimes against humanity – and always should have been recognized as such. Slavery and the transatlantic slave trade are among the major sources and manifestations of racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance that Africans and people of African descent, Asians and people of Asian descent and Indigenous/Native peoples were victims of these acts and continue to be victims of their consequences.

Every year, on March 25th, the United Nations International Day of Remembrance of the Victims of Slavery and the Transatlantic Slave Trade offers an opportunity to honor and remember those who suffered and died at the hands of the brutal slavery system. The International Day also aims to raise awareness about the dangers of racism and prejudice today.

On Monday, 3.26.18, - in solidarity with the United Nations and African, Asian and Indigenous people from around the world - Community Intelligence, the Making Connections Network, UCLA Community Programs Office, Prevention Institute and the Violence Prevention Coalition of Greater Los Angeles honor the victims of slavery and the transatlantic slave trade.
