The Department of African American Studies in the College of Arts and Sciences presents an Africa Initiative Event: What can the Biden-Harris Administration mean for Africa?

The seismic changes in the U.S. mean that there are many new players and that there is a need for new thinking on Africa. The new directions that the U.S. could take with Africa can strengthen its relationship with Africans at home and abroad. What does the newly inaugurated Biden-Harris administration mean for the future of Africa? Africa Initiative is excited to host such a dynamic and insightful group of speakers for a timely discussion.

Speakers:

  • Hon Kwesi Quartey, Fmr. Deputy Chairperson of the AU Commission, 2017-2021
  • Cheryl Hendricks, Director, Africa Institute South Africa
  • Julialynne Walker, Global Pan African Movement North America
  • Marcel Kittisou, Cornell University
