Why Black Unity? African Heritage Month 2018

Posted by GHO Admin on January 8, 2018 in Events

Date: Mon. Feb. 5, 2018 @ 6 - 8 PM
Location: Dalhousie SUB room 303

Please join the Black Student Advising Centre in celebrating the eve of Dalhousie Centennial in our 2018 African Heritage Month event with an interesting topic: Why Black Unity? Pan-Africanism, Dalhousie and the World​.

Though leaders such as Marcus Garvey, Bob Marley, and Rocky Jones believed strongly in the unity of black people – across the globe. But why did they choose Pan-Africanism as a world view, and is such a position still necessary for the 21st century? Join Dr. Chike Jeffers, philosopher of race, and Dr. Isaac Saney, historian, as they explore the history of Pan-Africanism and question its significance for Dalhousie, Nova Scotia, and the world.
