This is the flagship of Afrikan Unity Initiative, Inc. and our vessel used to help spread the mission of unity among people of Afrikan descent. The Afrikan Diaspora Dialogue has been expanded into a series with the following subtitles: Bridging the Gap, Black2Love™, and Black2Health™. The series will be hosted three times a year with each installment being done once. We envision this discussion to serve as a catalyst to action in the communities of Afrikans.
Bridging the Gap
The Afrikan Diaspora Dialogue: Bridging the Gap installment is the original panel discussion, which focuses on raising the awareness of the many Afrikan retentions that exist within the Diaspora. We use these cultural retentions as a linking factor to promote unity among all people of Afrikan descent. Afrikan Unity
Initiative also acknowledges that a comprehensive and accurate history of the people and places within the Afrikan Diaspora would create a consciousness necessary to desire Afrikan unity. Because knowing the past highlights and pitfalls of our brothers and sisters from other countries would explain why certain issues persist in those areas.
The panel is comprised of people representing various regions that have a strong presence of Afrikan descendants as in the Afrikan continent, the Caribbean, Latin America, and The United States. We envision this discussion to serve as a catalyst to action in the communities of Afrikans.
The Afrikan Diaspora Dialogue: Black2Love™ installment focuses on the commitment it takes to seek Afrikan liberation and unity globally. This particular discussion focuses on the unifying power of love, and how it is a necessary component of any effort toward unity.
We discuss how some people become arrogant and pompous once they attain a bit of Afrikan consciousness. This is not love and instead the person who knows should venture to teach those who are unknowing. It is the beautiful burden of those who gain knowledge to pass it forward in order to empower others to grow.
The Afrikan Diaspora Dialogue: Black2Health™ installment focuses on raising the awareness of the various ailments that affect people of Afrikan decent around the globe. We have the panel discussion portion in addition to a health fair with free HIV/AIDS testing, Diabetes screenings, Mammograms/Prostate Exams, etc. combating diseases common to people of Afrikan descent. The panel discussion will be about taking preventative measures to avoid these ailments as well as ways to live if you have the sicknesses.
