AS PART OF THE YEAR OF RETURN 2019

Ghana will host the 2019 Pan African Festival (PANAFEST) scheduled from July to August 2019.

THEME: RE-UNITING THE AFRICAN FAMILY

“BEYOND 400 YEARS; REACHING ACROSS CONTINENTS INTO THE FUTURE”

The festival significantly marks the 400th anniversary of the first landing of enslaved Africans in James Town, the capital of the English colony on the continent of North America.

Mr Charles Wiredu, Deputy Minister for Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration, who announced this a press launch of this year's African Union Day celebration, said the event would present a golden opportunity for removing the veil of silence over the indescribable sacrifices made by Africans and the application their tremendous skills, talents and life-blood to the accumulation of wealth in the New World.

He said: 'Being a singular largest event that promises to bring Africans together from across the continent and from all walks of life, I do not hesitate to use this modest platform to rally all and sundry to the cause and to invite all AU member States to
join in the massive commemoration of PANAFEST 2019'.

See the draft program.

PANAFEST aims, among others, at establishing the truth about the history and contribution of Africa and its people through the richness of its arts and culture while developing a framework for the identification and analysis of issues and needs central to Africa’s development.

It also provides a forum to promote unity between Africans on the continent and in the diaspora. It reaffirms the common heritage of African people over the world and their contributions to world civilisation.
