Telling Our Story(ies)
Tuesday April 13, 3:30 PM Eastern
The United Nations declared the International Decade for People of African Descent, 2015-2024. Around 200 million people identifying themselves as being of African descent live in the Americas. Many millions more live in other parts of the world, outside of the African continent. These are descendants of enslaved Africans brought in the region to multiple countries, with multiple stories of resilience, rebellion and resistance. Telling the story(ies) is important and requires a comprehensive narrative as we strengthen the call for justice.
