In 2020 and throughout 2021, IFRA, the Alliance française in Nairobi and The Elephant have been organizing webinars on Pan-Africanism to discuss its relevance for today’s imagination of Africa, as an idea and as a reality, and for acting in Africa and in the world. The Pan-African forums are moderated by Mshai Mwangola, a Performance scholar from the Orature Collective.
On August 17th our last forum on Panafricanisme will bring in an inter-generational discussion on what kind of activism is already in practice and is desirable for the future. It is also about what Pan Africanism looks like in the routine of our lives.
On June 29th this penultimate conversation of the Pan-African Forums will explore how activism of different kinds has catalysed, enriched, nurtured, sustained, and challenged the Pan-Africanist vision and mission through time.
