The purpose of the Gathering is to heighten awareness and present the truth, which mainstream media and governments fail to do, concerning the mortal conflicts, crises and tensions in Africa and their affects on Africa’s descendants, their children and the future of humanity. Critical Conversation in Community, Dialogue-Discussion in the Diaspora and the Creation of (the first) Afrikan Unity of Harlem International Community Center headline the Gathering’s agenda.
Informal conversation and dialogue-discussion with the “Community Family,” here and abroad, and brothers and sisters with “boots on the ground” presence along with panelists and speakers consisting of those with first-hand information, knowledge and cogent perspective on current events in their homeland of either Mali, Cote d’Ivoire, The Congo, The Sudan, Ethiopia, Eritrea, Nigeria and Somalia will, undoubtedly, provoke and propel strategic thought, the main objective of the Gathering. Urgent current events in Haiti, Jamaica, other areas of The Caribbean and the Northern Hemisphere will also be critically examined, analyzed and discussed via panel discussion with audience interaction. Q&A sessions and multi-media–film, the internet-Worldwide Web-SKYPE, CDs, DVDs, and videos—will serve to corroborate and substantiate the discussions, conversations and reporting and complement the event. Two intermissions will allow time for all to “meet and greet,” interact, enjoy refreshments and cultural/message music.
The goal of those who seek to conquer the minds and spirits of the natives and descendents of Africa–the richest continent on earth–with the ultimatum of creating a state of dependency, subservience, self-hatred and desperation continues to find consenting and accommodating subjects. Such pathology begs critical examination and will lead AUH’s President Ato Hailu to discuss the vital need for an International Community Center–a mighty and costly undertaking that requires funding. Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King once said, “Silence is betrayal,” and Minister Ajaye, AUH’s Vice President and son of The Honorable Queen Mother Moore, will discuss how the practice of The Seven Guiding Principles of Nguzo-Saba can serve to “break the silence,” respect our Ancestors, ancestral values, protect our existence and direct our children’s future. Minister Ajaye will also speak on his latest book which provocatively examines “identity.”
On Saturday, March 30, 2013 from 2:00 PM to 7:00 PM, the Afrikan Unity of Harlem, Inc. will hold a free and public Gathering at the renowned Dr. Barbara Ann Teer’s National Black Theatre located at 2031 Fifth Avenue, Harlem, New York 10035 at 125th Street, just blocks from the world-famous Apollo Theatre.
