Slave Trade and Rock 'n' Roll?

On August 23rd 1791, the rock 'n' roll spirit was displayed by slaves in Haiti. Their bravery and commitment sparked a chain reaction that resulted in the abolition of slave trade. Over 200 years later, UNESCO proclaimed 23 August as the International Day for the Remembrance of the Slave Trade and Its Abolition.

"All of humanity is part of this story, in its transgressions and good deeds."
- Irina Bokova, UNESCO Director-General
