March 21- The International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination 

March 21 marks the anniversary of the 1960 Sharpeville Massacre in South Africa. On that day, police opened fire on hundreds of peaceful demonstrators against Apartheid's passbook laws, killing 67 and wounding 186. In 1966, the United Nations declared March 21 the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination in memory of this tragedy.

Each year, the Centre for Race and Culture commemorates this important day. Over the years, our activities, events, lectures, ceremonies, and celebrations have served as opportunities for us to come together and renew our commitment to building an inclusive society free of racism. Our March 21st Campaign is our effort to engage our community in becoming more aware of racism and building more understanding between all of us.
