About this event: There is a growing effort across the continent to build bridges between African nations themselves and the diaspora, in an effort to restore the continent back to its pre-colonial glory. Many development projects have been created and funded with the help of the diaspora. 17 nations in Africa have formed a trade and travel alliance reconnecting African nations to each other. Rather than getting cocoa from South America, African nations will get it from Ghana, the largest producer of cocoa in the world. The alliance will make travel without visas available to citizens of the alliance opening inter-continental exploration and business opportunities. Hip Hop celebrity Akon is building small cities that will attract further development in Senegal. Many African Americans are resettling across various nations on the continent, opening businesses and building new lives, and bringing others along for the journey. The continent of Africa is the new frontier. It is also an opportunity to expand beyond the institutional racism in the US providing alternative markets and opportunities.
