On the occasion of the release of the "Mémorial ACTe I & II" connected vinyl, Unicum Music is organizing a unique meeting in partnership with the UNESCO Slave Route Project and the Mémorial ACTe, at UNESCO Headquarters in Paris, on 8 June.

This event, entitled "Free Living or Dying: Testimony, memory and transmission of artists around slavery" will revolve around three highlights:
- The presentation of the work of Shuck One and the concert of the violinist Yorrick Troman, who will play the musical work of Maxime Lenik, "Mémorial ACTe I & II".
- The return of artistic works on the subject of slavery by students in elementary school and college.
- A round table on the issue of slavery and its impact on the living together today, which will involve notably historians, researchers and political scientists from the Comité pour la mémoire et l'histoire de l'esclavage (CNMHE) and the Centre national de la recherche scientifique (CNRS).
