The Africa Policy Forum

Every two years, the Leon H. Sullivan Foundation convenes thousands of delegates from Africa, America, the Caribbean and Europe to an African country for the Leon H. Sullivan Summit - the largest Diaspora gathering in the world. The 2008 summit was held in Arusha and Zanzibar and had more than 4,000 participants. This year, however, the Foundation is bringing Africa to the Diaspora. 

The Africa Policy Forum: A Vision for the 21st Century will be held in Atlanta, GA from Wednesday 22nd September through Saturday 25th September. It is intended to bridge the gap between Africa, the U.S. and citizens of both in an event which will feature:
  •  High level policy forum on the Obama Administration's policy to Africa
  •  Networking opportunities
  • Critical education, health and economic opportunities
  •  Live cultural events
Full registration is $495, and it’s my understanding that currently registered students can attend for free (though the numbers may be limited). For more information and registration follow this link.
