From Shinkolobwe to Trinity

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).

Can be streamed live at

Coordination by Leona Morgan of the Nuclear Issues Study Group (Albuquerque, New Mexico) and Roger Peet of the Justseeds Artists’ Cooperative (Portland, Oregon) in association with CCSSA-South Africa and CRISPAL-Afrique
