Why 21 March?

On 21 March 1960, 69 anti-apartheid demonstrators were brutally murdered in Sharpeville, South Africa, in an event that became known as the Sharpeville Massacre. Apartheid was a legal system of systematic racial segregation and inequality enforced by the government of South Africa from 1948 to 1990. Since 1966, the United Nations has officially recognised 21 March as the International Day for the Elimination of all Forms of Racial Discrimination. This year marks the 50th anniversary of the declaration of this International Day.
