Africa Day 2021 | Women in Pan Africanism Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow
Africa Day is the annual commemoration of the foundation of the Organisation of African Unity on 25 May 1963. It is celebrated in various countries on the African continent, as well as around the world. We Charge Colonialism set aside time during Africa Day to honor and celebrate not only the remarkable achievements of African women but also to advocate for gender equality in Africa. It is also a day for women and indeed, all Africans to reaffirm their commitment to Pan-Africanism. It is a day for African women to assert their development and extricate themselves from discrimination, conflicts, violence, illiteracy, poverty, and diseases, which have sunk deeply through the meat of their progress, and impacted their development on the continent. We hereby join other stakeholders, in commemorating this very important day Until recently, much of the past has been recorded as his-story. The male voice and perspective have dominated the interpretation of the past focusing on the deeds of “great men” and a “few outstanding women”. We present you with five distinguished powerful acclaimed women panelists active in Pan Africanism and Mr. Malik Shaka providing an additional international focus and flair to the conversation. You don't want to miss this!
