Concert and exhibition on slave trade at UN

Listen /

A special concert will be held Tuesday night at the United Nations in support of a Permanent Memorial to the Victims of Slavery and the Transatlantic Slave Trade.

In conjunction with the performance, the UN has an ongoing free exhibition in the visitors lobby that showcases a retrospective on the scope and abolition of the slave trade.

The multimedia show includes photographs, illustrations, narratives, maps and historic newspapers that chronicle the 400 years of the transatlantic slave trade.

Julie Walker spoke with Earl Pinto, the founder of the New York African American Historical Society and one of the collectors whose work is on display at the UN, at the opening of the exhibition.
