UN concert remembers the victims of the transatlantic slave tradeListen /
A concert is being held in the General Assembly Hall on Friday, 22 March, to observe the International Day of Remembrance of the Victims of Slavery and the Transatlantic Slave Trade.
It is part of the week-long events at the United Nations in New York ahead of the day itself on 25 March which was designated by the General Assembly in December 2007.
One of the performers is Marcus Miller, a two-time Grammy Award-winning American jazz musician and UNESCO-designated Artist for Peace.
UN Radio's Derrick Mbatha caught up with Mr. Miller before the concert and first asked him about the event itself.
