Did you know Monday March 21, 2011 is International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination? This day commemorates the 1960 Sharpville massacres: a day when dozens of protesters were shot by police in South Africa during apartheid.

Activities, Break the Stereotype and Stepping Out, foster a deeper understanding of stereotypes and inequities.
