On March 21st, 1960 police opened fire on peaceful demonstrators in Sharpeville, South Africa. At the time, several hundred people were demonstrating against apartheid, and dozens of people died. In 1966, United Nations General Assembly proclaimed that March 21 would be an international day against racism and discrimination when people are encouraged to fight against racism.
