Conference: Pan-Africanism in the 21st Century: Challenges and Prospects

March 4, 2016 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Pan-Africanism in 21 CentToday’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.

FEATURED PANELISTS:

  • Msia K. Clark, Assistant Professor at Howard University/African Studies
  • Josephine Dawuni, Assistant Professor at Howard University/Political Sciences
  • Netfa Freeman, Pan-African Community Action and the Institute for Policy Studies
