That Africans were sold as slaves to the Americas and the Arab world for
over 500 years is one of the gravest inhuman treatment in the world. No other race has been subjected to that kind of tragedy. To make matters worse, the collapse of the Slave Trade gave birth to Colonialism that enslaved everyone on the continent.
One of the gravest sins of omission is that up to this day, almost 60 years after African countries attained political independence, the continent has failed to mark these two tragedies to remind humanity to guard against inhuman treatment.
The Centre for African Aesthetics (CAA) plans to launch the Commemoration of Slave Trade and Colonialism in Nairobi, Kenya.
