Remember Slavery: Say It Loud

An exhibition titled “Remember Slavery: Say It Loud” was on display from 5 to 28 March 2018, in the Visitors Lobby at United Nations Headquarters in New York.

Presented in collaboration with the National Organization of Minority Architects, the exhibit highlighted the work of 10 male and 11 female African diasporan architects, who through their perseverance and creative talent, gained recognition in this elite profession. Their unique perspective enabled them to have a voice and an impact on the way public spaces are presented and used.

The exhibit was organized as part of the commemoration of the 2018 International Day of Remembrance of the Victims of Slavery and the Transatlantic Slave Trade, under the theme “Remember Slavery: Triumphs and Struggles for Freedom and Equality”. The theme celebrated the gains of people of African descent from slavery to the present. It also acknowledged the challenges that were overcome in the movement towards freedom and equality in all professions.
