African Immigrants & their American Children

December 5, 2020 @ 11:30 AM - 1:00 PM

Join The Africa Center for an important discussion exploring African immigrants’ relationships and interactions with their children as it relates to race and identity. African Immigrants & Their American Children: A Discussion on Race & Identity will explore if and how Africans in the U.S. speak to their children and teach them about race, ethnicity and broader issues related to the Black Lives Matter movement. The program will be an exchange of experiences, resources, and expert advice from both first generation Americans and African immigrants on how parents of African descent can initiate conversations about race, racism, anti-racism, identity, police brutality, and colorism with their children.

The conversation will be moderated by Grammy-nominated vocalist, writer, and first-generation American, Somi Kakoma.
