Conference: Pan-Africanism in the 21st Century: Challenges and Prospects
March 4, 2016 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Today’s African world and its social movements are confronted with a myriad of contemporary issues: gender politics, Hip Hop culture and a modern day African youth movement, and a need to reassess the internal class struggles. We see a resurrection and reclaiming of the African value system, Ubuntu as well as the curious Movement for Black Lives.
What challenges and prospects do these things bring?
Join a group of organizations and institutions for an in-depth examination of Pan-Africanism in the 21st Century. We will address the concept of Black/African people in the U.S. as a domestic colony, what that means and its implications. We will also discuss why some feel Black community control over local economies, resources, and police are the only and urgent solution.
