Organized By: The Dalhousie Black Student Advising Centre


Please join the Dalhousie Black Student Advising Centre as we celebrate the eve of Dalhousie Centennial in our 2018 African Heritage Month event with an interesting topic: Why Black Unity? Pan-Africanism, Dalhousie and the World.


Though leaders such as Marcus Garvey, Bob Marley, and Rocky Jones believed strongly in the unity of black people – across the globe. But why did they choose Pan-Africanism as a world view, and is such a position still necessary for the 21st century? Join Dr. Chike Jeffers, philosopher of race, and Dr. Isaac Saney, historian, as they explore the history of Pan-Africanism and question its significance for Dalhousie, Nova Scotia, and the world.


Moderator: Tiffany Gordon
