From Manchester 1945 to a Pan-African Renaissance
Hosted virtually on 23 October to 29 October 2021, the 2021 Africa and African Diaspora Conference, under the theme ‘From Manchester 1945 to a Pan-African Renaissance’ initiated a confluence of Pan-African initiatives across the world to congregate, exchange on and build a Pan-Africanism for the future. The conference led to a call for a global movement and reinstatement of the principles and ideals of Pan-Africanism in all sectors pertaining to the social, political, spiritual and economic empowerment of Africans and people of African descent in this moment.
The conference brought together people of African descent from all the continents of the world (from the African continent, Asia, the Caribbean, Europe, Latin America, North America, Central America, and Oceania-Pacific Islands), and included voices from indigenous peoples and the people of Palestine. The conference was preceded by a Consultative Conference of Women of Africa and of African Descent from the regions referred to above (Pan African Women of Faith/Pan African Women’s’ Ecumenical Empowerment Network-PAWEEN).
