Speakers:

  • Esther Stanford-Xosei, Pan-Afrikan Reparations Coalition in Europe
  • Sebastian Ordoñez Muñoz - Inter Community Forum (ICF)

What is the role for Pan Africanism in issues of social and global justice today in the UK?  How do Africans in the diaspora connect and contribute to the resistance of imperialism and coloniality in Africa? What are the lessons to be learnt from relations between Africa and her diaspora in the past? What are the intersectional alliances that can be made to broaden and deepen the learning.

We hope this will be the first in a series of collaborations between Pan Africanists who subscribe to all forms of cultural, economic and political justice to raise awareness and develop best practice.
