On the 75th anniversary of the first ever test of a nuclear weapon at a site in New Mexico, USA, later referred to as the “Trinity site” in New Mexico, an international group of organizations will present a webinar connecting the histories of the front-line communities whose sacrifices made possible the United States’ efforts to create an atomic weapon during World War II. Miners in Congo had dug up the raw material – uranium – at Shinkolobwe mine.
Webinar: Thursday, July 16th, 2020 at 6pm Mountain Time (in USA).
