Black History Month 2007

by Jude MacDonald | February 1, 2007

February is Black History month. This year, the world will also mark the International Day for the Commemoration of the Two-hundredth Anniversary of the Abolition of the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade. The United Nations’ General Assembly will hold a special commemorative meeting on March 26, 2007. The day marks the signing of an act that abolished the slave trade throughout the British Empire, which helped chart the course for its abolition worldwide.
