What better way to close out March than by hosting an event for our community? This past Saturday, USAIG held “The Future of Africans”, a forum exploring issues concerning African immigrants here in the U.S. We were able to sell out every ticket that was available for the event, and we were pleasantly surprised by the huge turn-out!

The panel featured several distinguished leaders in our community, and guests came from various African nations, including Senegal, Nigeria, Guinea-Conakry, Cote D’ivoire, and Cameroun, to name a few. We discussed a variety of issues ranging from our identity as a community, our relationship with our African-American brothers and sisters, police brutality, and more. And of course, the discussion got so heated that we even went overboard on time.
