Angola: Black Race Trophy Is People's Victory - MP

São Paulo — National Assembly (Angolan Parliament) member, Monteiro Kapunga, Monday in São Paulo, Brazil, stressed the extension of the Black Race Trophy around the world which attracts the struggle for racial equality.

The MP said so to the Angolan press on the fringes of a ceremony of award of the Black Race Trophy to the bishop of the church Our Lord Jesus Christ in the World, Afonso Nunes.

"This honour for the black race in Brazil should have been extended to all blacks in the world as discrimination still prevails and it is worth that the religious leader gets it, because the church has been engaged in the struggle for liberation of human beings in all social fields," he said.

The Black Race Trophy, which in its 10th edition was dedicated to Martin Luther King, was assigned to the black and non-black personalities who dedicated to the fight for equal rights and opportunities of all men, regardless of the race, political convictions or religious belief.
