Race Unity Day 2010

Race Unity Day 2010

March 21 is observed around the world as the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination. It recalls killing of 69 black protestors at Sharpeville in South Africa in 1960.  Here in Nelson our observance  took the form of a celebration of our multicultural community, “Race Unity Day“.
