Atlanta, Georgia, Saturday, February 22, 2020: The United Nations General Assembly proclaimed 2015 – 2024 as the International Decade of People of African Descent. This proclamation was made because the people of the African diaspora and their human rights should be protected and promoted. During the month of February, we celebrate and honor the contributions that people of African descent have made to this Nation.
