SAYASPORA TEAM | DIASPORA SPEAKING EN

As we are celebrating our 1 year anniversary, SAYASPORA is back with a brand new event: DIASPORA SPEAKING !

Our editorial team is inviting you to DISCOVER, SHARE, LEARN and NETWORK on SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 24, 2016 from 6pm to 10 pm at DIASPORA SPEAKING : an event that aims to celebrate women and youth stemming from the African diaspora.

Often many narratives present the African Diaspora as a complete & separate entity, outside of the continent. In some ways this is true, however the role of the contemporary African diaspora and the interactions between the continent are much more complex than what these narratives present. With the rise of the global media age, the interconnections between the continent and the contemporary African diaspora have become much stronger. It’s time to make our voice heard: Hello world, it’s the DIASPORA SPEAKING !
