African slave trade in the Americas — a universal legacy

14 May 2018

Learning the lessons of the 400-year transatlantic slave trade involves grasping the universal effects of its legacy, as well as recognizing and celebrating the contributions to society of the African diaspora and people of African descent.

For this latest edition of our UN & Africa podcast, we speak to two leading voices from the diaspora, who took part in a major youth event on the issue last month at UN Headquarters, for a powerful discussion over its consequences and challenges.
