Thank you for such an enlightening weeklong program. It has truly spoken to my heart. My greatest desire is that African Americans begin to see the Continent with a new vision for change.


This was an amazing news feature, the story left me wanting for more. As an African American woman who wears her hair naturally I felt affirmed.
