Africa Agenda the community to come and meet with and learn about the state of the African continent today. Find out what Africans are doing to change the continent, how journalists are working to improve the reporting of African news, and ways that individuals, businesses and organizations can engage to make life better for all.
The two-hour soiree honors the African continent and reflects on its developments, such as
