Monday 25 May is Africa Day (also known as African Freedom Day or African Liberation Day) and is the annual commemoration of the foundation of the Organisation of African Unity (OAU), now known as the African Union on 25 May 1963.
Africa Day is celebrated in various countries on the African continent, as well as around the world.
During the event there will be short, TED talk type, inputs from guest speakers followed by a Q&A
and then there will be a Q&A with a panel to round things off. Guest speakers include Paul Eme (you may know him as Paul Obinna Wilson Eme) and Aunkh Aakhu. Many of you will be familiar with Paul Eme who is an Education Consultant who has lectured all over the world. Paul is one of the people who inspired me back in the mid 1990s when I attended the Education of the Black Child Conferences that he helped organse.
Brother Aunkh is a guerilla marketing expert who specialises in helping small Afrikan owned businesses. He is also a master teacher of Kemetic Yoga. Aunkh divides his time between Atlanta in the US and Uganda.
Jeremy Prince, co-founder of Nubian Link, who are promoting and hosting the event said,
“It makes perfect sense for our organisation that strives to develop and promote the educational, cultural and economic needs of the African community to commemorate Africa Day with this online event whilst physical, social and group gatherings are not possible due to COVID-19.”
