Living in Harmony
In 1966, the United Nations declared March 21 as the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination in commemoration of the 1960 Sharpeville massacre in South Africa when peaceful demonstrators against apartheid were wounded and killed.
In 1990, City Council proclaimed March as Cultural Diversity and Race Relations Month in the City of Saskatoon.
