From Negro History to Afrikan History 1926 – 2016′ – Honouring The Father’
Date – 07/02/2017
6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Location – East Oxford Community Centre
Discussion by local Afrikanists and Pan-Afrikanists on:
How far ‘Negro History has achieved its original objectives?
Since the inception of ‘Negro History Week’ in 1926, it has undergone various name changes, ‘Black History Month’ being the longest serving and most popular. But we must ask ourselves, should we accept ‘Black’ to define what we are talking about is the history of a continent, as old as time itself? Yet we, in particular people of Afrikan heritage persist in defining our history simply by a colour. No other continent or people would endorse such a label if it was applied to them.
Presenters to be announced.
