Description/Abstract of your Event: 

What ever happened to Pan-Africanism? What has become of this once powerful current in black thought? During its heyday in the 1950s and 60s, in the vanguard of the anti-colonial struggle, it seriously vied for state power and for a minute, it exerted influence in those corridors. Is Pan-Africanism still relevant today?
