The purpose of the Pan-Afrikan day of Solidarity is to establish a day on which Afrikan people can congregate in a communitarian spirit to pay homage to African deities, revere African ancestors, honor African elders; and demonstrate a show of Pan-Afrikan Solidarity, by bringing together Afrikan people in the Diaspora and from the continent, to stand in Unison. Among other things, the Pan-Afrikan Day of Solidarity is about the celebration of Afrikan Family-hood, Afrikan History and Afrikan Culture. It’s about raising the social consciousness and deepening the political awareness of Afrikan people. In addition, this day is about networking with one another, promoting Afrikan unity and propagating Pan-Afrikanism. In short, the purpose of the Pan-Afrikan Day of Solidarity is to create a harmonious atmosphere wherein Afrikan people can commune in a celebratory spirit, to re-affirm the Afrikan personality.
The Pan-African Symposium is not about entertainment; it is not just an event to make people feel good. Nor is it an information flaunting forum. The Pan-African Symposium is an extension of the Pan-African Day of Solidarity, which is a movement. At the core of the symposium is development and rectification. Therefore, The Pan-African Symposium is transformative in the sense that African people will be touched in ways that inspire productive change within the lives. Thus, the Pan-African Symposium will serve as an experience wherein healthy socialization is promoted and fostered. It will be a consciousness building experience!
