Angola: Ambassador Stresses Black Race Trophy Role in Promotion of Values

São Paulo — Angolan ambassador to Brazil, Nelson Cosme, said Monday that the delivery of the Black Race Trophy to the bishop of Our Lord Jesus Christ in the World church is an important action judging by its role in the promotion of human fundamental values.

The diplomat was speaking to the Angolan press on the sidelines of the ceremony to handover of the trophy to personalities who excelled in the struggle for inclusion of blacks into the society, especially in Brazil.

Nelson Cosme said that the trophy promotes the fundamental values such as equal opportunity, rights and duties, regardless of the beliefs of each.

The Black Race Trophy, which in its 10th edition went for Martin Luther King, was awarded to 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.
