  • McCarter Celebrates - International Day for the Remembrance of the Slave Trade and Its Abolition

    In August, we commemorate International Day for the Remembrance of the Slave Trade and Its Abolition (August 23). The United Nations designated August 23 as a day to remember the lives of the millions who were transported against their will from Africa to the Americas from the 16th century to the 19th century and those that died while being transported. The intention of the day is to educate and to raise awareness of the dangers of racism and prejudice. We also celebrate Women’s Equality Day (August 26) to salute the ratification of the 19th Amendment, to raise awareness of gender equality and to recognize the hard work and sacrifices made by women to attain the right to vote.
