Pan African Unity Dialogue

Background

The Pan African Unity Dialogue was initially convened by the Institute of the Black World 21st Century out of recognition of the emergence 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. Residing in the same neighborhoods does not necessarily mean that these diverse African people will unite to advance their mutual interests in a society where individual and institutional racism remain barriers to Black progress.

Mission and Goal

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.

Functions

To achieve this mission and goal the Pan African Unity Dialogue functions to:

  • Promote cultural and historical exchanges about people of African descent from Africa, the Caribbean, Central and South America and the U.S.
  • Facilitate information-sharing about the background, programmatic priorities and calendar of events of the Participants.
  • Explore ways to impact local, state and national policies affecting people of African descent in the U.S.
  • Provide updates on the social, economic and political status of people of African descent in Africa, the Caribbean, Central and South America and to act to ameliorate or resolve crises, promote democracy, development and Black empowerment.
  • Mobilize/organize collective actions to promote and defend the interests of people of African descent in the U.S. and the Pan African World as necessary and appropriate.
