"Africa and People of African Descent: Issues and Actions to Re-envision the Future"
(Lecture/Discussion)

The Department of World Languages and Cultures of Howard University presents an International Conference: "Africa and People of African Descent: Issues and Actions to (Re)-envision the Future" aims to invite academic, scholars, journalists, writers, youth and community leaders, NGOs, artists, play writers, etc. to promote a greater knowledge and respect for the diverse African heritage and culture of People of African Descent; to expose the struggling for the recognition of their African memories (history, literature, art, music, dance, culinary, religion, etc.) and their participation in political, economic, social and cultural aspects of their respective nations. The interdisciplinary International Conference will also attempt to address the national resistance or national silence opposed to the struggle of marginalized People of Africa and African Descent for their rights of land and for their civil/human, political, social, economical rights, etc. Moreover, one of the critical objectives of the Conference is to make possible both the connection between Africa and the African Diaspora in Europe and the Americas (Latin America and, eventually, Canada and the USA) and to identify (shared) actions to re-envision their futures. Ultimately, all the presentations at the International Conference will be assembled, edited and published.
