International Day for The Elimination of Racial Discrimination is celebrated every year on March 21 to remind people of the negative effects of racial discrimination, inequity, and prejudice.

It was first established in 1966, six years after the Sharpeville tragedy – also known as the Sharpeville massacre – that occurred at the police station in Africa. After days of protests, more than 7,000 people went to the African station, where the police opened fire, killing 69 men and women and injuring hundreds of others.

The event captured global attention, and soon after that, the UN General Assembly called out a press conference to increase awareness and eliminate racial discrimination. Today, the UN continues its agenda and battles against all types of racial inequalities.
