Event Details: What Is An African? Migration and African Identity in the 21st Century - Four Part Event Series
The Center for
African Education Presents: What Is An African? Migration and African
Identity in the 21st Century - Four Part Event Series
For millennia, Africa has been at a great nexus of movement, ideas, resources and power. In the 21st century, themes both old and new are emerging. Globalization is changing the way people around the world communicate, produce, relate to one another and relate to themselves. In this context, the Center for African Education turns its yearly series “What is an African?” to the 21st century and asks, “What does it mean to claim an African identity in an era of migration and globalization?” Inspired by this question, we will explore four themes in the following four events this semester, culminating in an Oxford-Style debate.
· The second event entitled, What
Is An African: African Diaspora Music of Popular Protest, will be on
April 5th (8:00pm-10:00pm)
