The Pan-African Weekend is a an annual event of bringing together the African diaspora to celebrate Pan-African excellence. From Thursday to Sunday, the weekend is jam packed with various events that allow for networking, learning and relishing in the beauty that is Pan-Africans coming together to celebrate and uplift each other. The weekend's signature event is a formal gala that celebrates trailblazers from various industries including the linkes of Rev. Al Sharpton, Wyclef Jean, Boris and Nicole Kodjoe, Alek Wek, Vanessa De Luca - the Editor-in-Chief of ESSENCE megazine, and many others.
In addition to the Pan-African Weekend, I've worked with Face2face Africa in other capacities, particular as a contributor to their site. I've written pieces on natural hair in Nigeria, vices holding Nigeria back, and much more.
