It delves into ways society has been psychologically dismantling us and ways we can work to strategically empower ourselves. We will be hosting a diverse group for our panel discussion with notable keynote speaker.

Our upcoming celebration coincides with the born day of the Honorable Malcolm X who said it best: The future belongs to those who prepare for it today.


People from various parts of the earth provide a perspective on how different cultures occupying the same space and time, converge. The result of this combining of communities gives life to a new hybrid form of culture – embraced and shared for cultural convergence. #AFRIKIN
