March 25 is the UN International Day of Remembrance of the Victims of Slavery and the Transatlantic Slave Trade. STG observes the day with songs of slavery and freedom from around the planet. Plus new global sounds and a few concert previews in hour 2.
Slavery has been outlawed, but it isn’t gone. To find out more about modern-day slavery and how you can help end it, visit antislavery.org
