The Sankofa day memorial provides a space for all who wish to remember and honour the victims of the transatlantic slave trade.
Over 20 years ago UNESCO designated the 23 August as the international day for the remembrance of the slave trade and its abolition, to remember this history and its victims. This day has seen little recognition in the u.k. with many not even aware that the day exists. In 2016 slavery remembrance was established to change this by holding an annual national memorial in London’s Trafalgar square to help promote this day and remember and honour the victims of the transatlantic slave trade. The memorial is held on the Saturday before August 23.
The Sankofa day memorial provides a space for all who wish to remember and honour the victims of the transatlantic slave trade. It is important for everyone, regardless of race, ethnicity, age or colour to come together to remember this horrendous piece of our shared history and pay respect to those who so greatly suffered during those 400 years. By doing so we hope that we can eventually begin to bring understanding and peace for all.

The memorial is free to attend, however, it is organised by a grassroots community organisation which receives no funding, government or otherwise. Therefore to help cover the costs of putting on this event those of you who can are asked to give a donation. Together we can give the victims of the transatlantic holocaust a memorial they deserve.
