Marking Spirit Of African Jubilee Year 1987-88, and International Decade For People Of African Descent (IDPAD) 2015-24. This is an inclusive, family-friendly event. Video-focused, starting with Dr Kehinde Andrews‘ ‘A Radical Vision Of A New Africa’ video, and a forum to explore ‘What is, or should be, the pan-African vision?’ and ‘How is pan-Africanism being manifested, or how should it be manifested?’ Although the concept of pan-Africanism has a long history, its well-known pioneers have generally been drawn from the Anglo diaspora – names such as Henry Sylvester Williams, WEB Du Bois, Marcus Garvey, George Padmore,and Amy Ashwood Garvey. In her short audio-visual presentation ‘Highlighting Pioneering Non-Anglo Diasporan And Continental Pan-Africanists’, community activist Nana Asante will highlight some of the unsung pan-Africanists from the non-Anglo diaspora, such as Haiti, and from the African continent, who deserve to be better known. History consultant Kwaku in his paper detailed below, asserts that if pan-Africanism is not to atrophy into nothing more than a topic confined to discussion and academic discourse, Africans, particularly African leaders must capture the imagination and support of their people by putting forward bold pan-Africanist visions, with a belief and determination to bring them into reality! The alternative is the begging bowl mentality which sinks African nations on the continent and the diaspora deeper into debt-trap and lack of sovereignty.
