We Remember Africa and her Dream, 50 years on

“I am not African because I was born in Africa but because Africa is born in me.” Kwame Nkrumah

May 25, 2013, is Africa Day and marks the 50th Anniversary of the formation of the Organisation of African Unity which subsequently evolved into the African Union. This day provides us with an opportunity to acknowledge the achievements of the peoples and governments of Africa and to reaffirm our commitment to building a better future for Africa and all her people. Under the topic, “What Does It Mean to Be an African?” we invite you to share your views and reflect on the values that bind Africa together and how these speak to the successes and challenges of modern African societies.

Share your articles with us on the FrankTalk Blog or send them to dibuseng@sbf.org.za and be a part of remembering our commitment to common African values such as equity, equality, solidarity, communalism, and reconciliation.

Articles may be between 500 and 1500 words.

  1. Hey, can I ask I am not trying to down MLK at all he is a good inspiration to all races but I need to ask how come he talks about segregation like African americans were the only ones segregated against? native americans , mexican Americans, Indonesians their were a lot of others who were segregated against and he said "One day little black boys and black girls can hold hands with little white boys and white girls" all I am saying is that don't say you stand for every one if you only stand for your own kind.Thank you!
