Africa and African Diaspora Conference


The 2021 Africa and African Diaspora Conference, under the theme ‘From Manchester 1945 to a Pan-African Renaissance’ brought together a confluence of Pan-African initiatives across the world to congregate, exchange on and build a Pan-Africanism for the future.

This conference hosted global representatives from Africa and all regions of the world where people of African descent are found, including the Americas, Caribbean, Europe, Asia and Oceania—from both civil society and political institutions to revisit the ground-breaking decisions of the 1945 6th Pan-African Congress in Manchester and the 2001 World Conference against Racism.

You can now enjoy access to all the Conference recordings.
