The 2nd Bisa Aberwa Museum Kwame Nkrumah Lecture on Pan-Africanism takes place today, Friday 18th March, at 11am at the Bisa Aberwa Museum in Nkotumpo, Sekondi, Western Region. The event will be both in-person and virtual via Zoom to give those in the diaspora community an opportunity to participate in such an important event. The theme is ‘Pan Africanism: The Obstacles’.
The lecture looks at the contemporary issues arising out of the desire to strengthen the bonds of solidarity between all people of African descent. Notable speakers will be contributing their voices to the conversation including, Professor Agyeman Badu Akosa, a pathologist and former Director General of the Ghana Health Service and Dr. Arikana Chihombori-Quao, former African Union Representative to the U.S.
Bisa Aberwa is using this event as an opportunity to encourage all Pan Africanists to pause and reflect on how far we have come when it comes to working towards bridging connections across the diaspora. This is an ongoing topic that has been important for the global diaspora community since the times of Kwame Nkrumah who had a vision to see a united Africa that included our diaspora brothers and sisters. The goal of this event is to look at what are the obstacles, who is placing these obstacles in our way and for what reasons. It’s the chance for our community to discuss solutions and the way forward. Also asking if we are achieving ‘collective self-reliance’ and what are we aiming for?
Join the conversation via Zoom at 11am GMT.
