Front page of the Manual
Organized by UNESCO Office in Kinshasa, in collaboration with the National Commission for UNESCO in the DRC and the Representation of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights in the country, this initiative is part of the commemoration of the International Day of the Remembrance of the Slave Trade and its Abolition (23 August), and the International Year of People of African Descent.
Bringing together different stakeholders in charge of education, culture, higher education and research, but also the diplomatic representations in the country, the activities scheduled for this day include:
• the official presentation and symbolic handing to the UNESCO Associated Schools in DRC of the manual “La traite négrière, l’esclavage et les violences coloniales en République Démocratique du Congo” [The slave trade, slavery and colonial violence in the Democratic Republic of Congo], which has just been published;
• the screening of the documentary "Slave Routes: A Global Vision"
• the workshop, focussed on the achievements of the Slave Route project in the DRC. It will help assessing the prospects for the future, defining a roadmap for the project in the country and to reorganize the National Executive Committee and the Steering Board of the Slave Route project. The ultimate goal is the effective implementation of itineraries of the memory related to slave trade and slavery in the country.
