About the Pan African Unity Dialogue

The Pan African Unity Dialogue (PAUD) meets quarterly in New York under the leadership of the Institute of the Black World 21st Century. It emerged out of a recognition of the growing presence of a “new African community” in the U.S.; a community enriched by the arrival of increasing numbers of Continental Africans and people of African descent from the Caribbean, Central and South America.

The mission of the Pan African Unity Dialogue is to “practice Pan Africanism in the United States,” the “African Diaspora,” by promoting unity, cooperation and action between Continental Africans, Caribbean Americans, Afro-Latinos and African Americans. The goal is to achieve social, economic and political empowerment for people of African descent, Black people, in the U.S. and the global Black community.
