The Netherlands commemorate the 150th anniversary of Slavery abolition. For this special anniversary, the Mayor of Amsterdam, Eberhard Edzard van der Laan, has invited Michelle Obama to the city, although her attendance has not yet been confirmed.
On July 1, 1863, the Dutch government outlawed slavery in the Netherlands and its former colonies. To remember and celebrate this historical event, various activities, like the Keti Koti festival are organized throughout Amsterdam.
