We are delighted to announce that the HACSA Sankofa Virtual Summit registration is now open! HACSA Summits reunite the African diaspora and celebrate the rich history, heritage and culture of Africa and peoples of African descent. They are a unique opportunity for networking with the global diaspora and learning more about Africa. The Summits bring together heads of state, opinion leaders, practitioners, academics, students, creatives, enthusiasts and participants from Africa and the diaspora. This year, the fact that the HACSA Sankofa Summit is virtual means that it will be accessible to more people. Make sure you tell all your family and friends who couldn't make it to Ghana in 2019 to register! We will have exciting keynote speakers, panel discussions, exhibitions, films, music, virtual heritage tours and much more. Come and join us for a virtual networking experience of a lifetime! We have deliberately kept the fee low ($25) to encourage registration from students and young people but you can give an additional donation if you can afford it and spread the word amongst your friends and family.
