The United Nations will host an online discussion entitled “Unveiling the Past” on 19 November, at 10 a.m. EST.  The speakers will consider the significance of the preservation of burial grounds of those enslaved by the transatlantic slave trade, the ethical questions raised in disturbing these sacred grounds, and the challenges facing historians writing the history of the transatlantic slave trade and histories of the men, women and children lost to this brutal practice.
