June 9, 2008

Click on the image to see the full poster for this event.

The Day of the African Child was established by the African Union to remember the thousands of school children who marched on June 16, 1976 in Soweto, South Africa to protest the inferior quality of their education and apartheid policies of the South African government. During the march, hundreds of young boys and girls were shot down. The Day of the African Child honors the memory of those killed and the courage of all the young boys and girls who marched that day. It also draws attention to the plight of African children today. Please join the Harambee Centre at the World Forestry Center to honor the Day of the African Child.
