African Heritage Month Event: Why Black Unity? Pan-Africanism, Dalhousie and the World

February 5, 2018 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Thought leaders such as Marcus Garvey, Bob Marley, and Rocky Jones believed strongly in the unity of black people — across the globe. But why did they choose Pan-Africanism as a world view, and is such a position still necessary for the 21st century? Join Dr. Chike Jeffers, philosopher of race, and Dr. Isaac Saney, historian, as they explore the history of Pan-Africanism and question its significance for Dalhousie, Nova Scotia, and the world.
