Discussion on Africa and African
American relations returns to CSUS

Experts from across the country and around the world will meet at California State University, Sacramento’s University Union from Thursday, April 29 through Saturday, May 1 to discuss the theme of “African and African American Relations in U.S., the Americas and Africa,” during the Africa/Diaspora Conference. Maulana Karenga, the creator of Kwanzaa, will deliver the keynote address at 10 a.m. Friday and will be honored during Saturday’s Africa Peace Awards.

Other highlights of Friday’s program will be a discussion on “The African American Influence in U.S. Foreign Policy toward Africa” by Mikhail Vishnesvskiy of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Moscow. Also that day will be a discussion on the “Role of African Americans in the U.S.A. Economy: 1865-1914” led by Gaddam Jalendar Reddy from India’s Osmania University College for Women.

Saturday’s highlights will include a closing address by San Francisco State’s Wade Nobles on the topic of “One Africa: In Africa and Throughout the World” and will conclude with the 12th annual Africa Peace Awards dinner and dance.

The event is hosted by the Center for African Peace and Conflict Resolution in collaboration with CSUS’ Pan African Studies Program.
