Is a Vision Enough?
What can we expect over the next 20 years from the African Diaspora?
05 May 2017 from 6:30 to 9:00 PM
Venue: Khalili Lecture Theatre, SOAS, University of London, WC1H OXG
AFFORD, in partnership with the Centre of African Studies (CAS) SOAS, invites you to participate in a unique opportunity to hear from two African pioneers in the field of diaspora and migration, Gibril Faal OBE will lead Chukwu-Emeka Chikezie MBE in conversation, exploring together what two decades of collaboration around “diasporas for development” has achieved.
This fascinating and timely discussion will also address the tectonic shifts in the political landscape here in Britain, across Europe and, of course, in the United States, encompassing a critical appraisal of the assumptions, strategies, aims, and methods of diasporas and development.
Join us for an inspiring evening to celebrate one of AFFORD’s pioneers in particular and the achievements of the African diaspora in general. Most importantly, join us to explore how we should again seek to turn our great visions into transformational future realities over the next 20 years.
