UNESCO launches campaign for Black Awareness Day, 20 November

To celebrate the National Black Awareness Day , UNESCO has created the campaign "Black awareness means having eyes open for diversity”. Take part in our campaign by sending two photographs (one smiling, one with eyes closed) to the link bit.ly/consc_negra. The selected photos will take part in a large digital board to be aired in 20 November.

The National Black Awareness Day was envisioned by poet, professor and researcher Oliveira Silveira (1941-2009) from the Brazilian state of Rio Grande do Sul. The proposed date is meant to celebrate a regained awareness by the black community about their great worth and contribution to the country.
