9th African History Month Conference: Debunking Eurocentric lies and Rewriting African History
March 31, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - April 1, 2021 @ 12:30 am EAT
Join us in the Grand Finale 9th African History Month Conference as we Debunk Eurocentric lies and rewrite African History from our own point of view.
We are delighted to host Dr. The Most Honorable Anthony Gabby Carter the cultural Ambassador for Barbados representing the African-Caribbean family and extremely honored to have Anthony Browder as our Keynote Speaker for this historical event.
The African Media has an instrumental role to play to ensure that we take charge of our narrative and tell our stories from Afrocentric perspective.
For many years the true history of Africa has remained hidden and not taught in African schools but instead the colonial History has been overemphasized as if that is where it all began yet the truth is that the History of Africa did not begin with slavery.
There were thriving and Powerful African Kingdoms for thousands of years before the advent of the European colonial domination.
How do we rewrite the history of Africa that they tried to destroy and erase ?
There is need for us to embrace the African identity and acknowledge the fact that out of many we are one African nation regardless the colonial boundaries they imposed against us.
Africa must unite and redeem itself from foreign domination.
We must decolonize our education system and promote authentic History of Africa written by Africans for Africa.
Until The Lion Learns How To Write, Every Story Will Glorify The Hunter
