"The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams."

-  Elechi Amadi (Nigerian Novelist)

Embark on a journey of self-discovery and collective action as we explore the power of a Pan-African Renaissance. This interactive conversation will delve into the dynamism of culture, the malleability of reality, and the agency we hold to shape our own destinies.

We'll unpack the legacies of colonialism and oppression, but move beyond them to identify the unique gifts we bring to our communities.  Together, we'll explore how centering ourselves, our knowledge, and indigenous values allows us to tackle global challenges.

Join us for a thought-provoking discussion that will introduce you to the core themes of the Ijeruka course "Cultural Architectures: Building Afrocentric Realities.

  • The dynamism of culture and the power of collective imagination
  • Overcoming the shadows of colonialism and oppression
  • Identifying our unique gifts and roles in shaping the future
  • Seeing ourselves as part of a social change ecosystem
  • The importance of indigenous knowledge systems and values
  • Problem-solving with a Pan-African perspective
  • Afrofuturism as World-Building
