    Bearing in mind the reason why August 23 was chosen, history consultant Kwaku advocates the use of an alternative terminology: International Day Of African Resistance Against Enslavement. In this short, interactive presentation, he breaks down the history which led UNESCO to this date, which was adopted by Britain in 2007 to commemorate the trafficking of Africans and its abolition. He posits that marking August 23 should not be solely focused on enslavement, by highlighting a number of key global African historical events that happened in August. We'll also explore several Marcus Garvey-related August moments, including why some pan-Africanists call August Mosiah month. This event is aimed at an inter-generational audience.
