This is a very important step for us to bring our unique connection to the slavery era to a wider audience and to hopefully raise more awareness of it.

It will be streamed by the UN.

Participants will include the Minister of State ( 2), Foreign Affairs, Hon. Isata Kabia, the Permanent Representative of Sierra Leone to the UN, H.E. Ambassador Vandi Minah and staff of the Embassy.
