BTWSC/African Histories Revisited and TAOBQ (The African Or Black Question) present in association with Friends Of Marcus Garvey Bust Collective and Brent Museum and Archives the sixth Marcus Garvey Annual Pan-Africanism Presentation 2023: Identity.
This is a family-friendly event.
This year, history consultant Kwaku assisted by community activist Nana Asante will facilitate a discussion among participants and special guests to interrogate the question of African identity, bearing in mind that we’re in the UN’s 2015-2024 International Decade Of People Of African Descent (IDPAD) initiative. Not to mention the recent launch of the UN’s Permanent Forum For People Of African Descent.
This forum is meant people* to improve our knowledge of issues around African identity, pan-Africanism and IDPAD, invoking the “each one, teach one” mode. It also marks the 136th anniversary of the birth of the pan-Africanist icon Marcus Garvey.
*NOTE: This paid-for event is expected to attract people who are either serious about learning, or sharing their knowledge, about pan-Africanism and its history, and living a productive life in the Diaspora.
The event is part of marking UN’s International Decade For People Of African Descent (IDPAD) initiative.
This is meant to be an inter-generational event, so you are welcome to bring young people.
When booking, you can also express your interest in making a short oral presentation/contribution (must provide title/subject matter) to guarantee having a chance to contribute during the meeting.
