Bridging the gap. Building connections. Creating new narratives.

UNITE Overview

This one-day conference unites leaders for an engaging conversation to deconstruct stereotypes and false narratives affecting Africans in the diaspora. This year’s conference will focus on bridging the gap, building connections, and creating new narratives. Until the lion has a historian, tales of hunting will also glorify the hunter. It’s time to tell our own story, through our own voice, to make an impact in our community.
