“There has been a significant and accelerated shift in the ways African and Afro-descended people are now connecting with each other and with the African continent no matter where we are in the world. Culturally, we’re experiencing a renaissance with both our African and African diasporic experiences at the center, rather than having to choose to focus on one or the other, and born from our many histories of movement, relocation, and rebuilding of our lives and communities,” said Dr. Uzodinma Iweala, CEO of The Africa Center. “Through the cultural markers and forms of creative expression that are the most unique to African and African Diasporic communities, States of Becoming explores the ways in which both African and Afro-Diasporic identities co-exist and shape each other, offering us an opportunity to imagine what the contemporary and future Pan-African identity – or identities – might become.” | Get the full story.
