On the night of 22 to 23 August 1791, in Saint Domingue, today the Republic of Haiti, saw the beginning of the uprising that would play a crucial role in the abolition of the transatlantic slave trade.
It is against this background that the International Day for the Remembrance of the Slave Trade and its Abolition is commemorated on 23 August each year. It was first celebrated in a number of countries, in particular in Haiti (23 August 1998) and Gorรฉe Island in Senegal (23 August 1999).
Brian Lewis, President, Caribbean Association of National Olympic Committees (CANOC) leaves an important message.
"The most enduring legacy of the transatlantic slave trade is racism, and the political, economic and structural benefits that were earned and gained by the colonial powers of Western Europe from slavery and colonialism. And if we want to strive for a world that is just and equal, and that is rooted in dignity for all, we must recognise and embrace the reality that Sport does not exist in a vacuum and that Sport is a reflection and a microcosm of our societies.โ€

Did you know that today the 18th July, which is Nelson Mandela's birthday, was declared by the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) as Nelson Mandela International Day in 2010?

๐Ÿ—ฃFamous Quote -2000, Laureus World Sports Awards

โ€œSport has the power to change the world,โ€ Mandela said. โ€œIt has the power to inspire. It has the power to unite people in a way that little else does. It speaks to youth in a language they understand. Sport can create hope where once there was only despair. It is more powerful than governments in breaking down racial barriers. It laughs in the face of all types of discrimination.โ€
