I am proud to be among featured artists at Afropop Worldwide’s 30th Anniversary and Gala on May 3 at City Winery NYC. The event will feature performances by two new Afropop Hall of Fame honorees: Garifuna global ambassador Aurelio Martinez, and Zimbabwe’s international sensation, Mokoomba..  

Afropop’s mission is to reveal the essential music and stories of Africa and the African diaspora, celebrating the roots of the world’s greatest pop music traditions.

'I had always been attracted to and fascinated by elephants, particularly their symbolism, as a child who was re-located to Kenya with her family at the age of 10. The elephant represents wisdom, maternal strength, and longevity. As a symbol of wisdom, the elephant is said to attain old age and the animal is highly revered for its strength and emotional intelligence. There are several lessons we can learn from the lucky elephant, loyalty to its family and role in community. We need to embrace them now and for the future. Yet, man continues to destroy them.'

In the early 20th century, there were around 3-5 million African elephants. Today, there are approximately 415,000.

My T-shirts, paintings and greetings cards advocate support for and raises awareness about a broad range of causes including poverty, empowering women and girls, youth education, wildlife preservation, arts and culture.

About Afropop: Afropop Worldwide is a Peabody award-winning radio program and online magazine dedicated to music from Africa and the African diaspora. Hosted by one of Africa’s best-loved broadcast personalities, Georges Collinet, and produced by Sean Barlow, the radio show is currently distributed by PRI Public Radio International to over 100 stations in the U.S., as well as stations in Europe and Africa.

Columbia University: Annual African Economic Forum 2018 - April 7, New York

images-1.jpeg

I am excited to be participating on a panel at Columbia University’s Annual African Economic Forum.  My remarks will primarily focus on the importance of private-public partnerships and approaches to address youth unemployment, mitigate poverty and create a path to economic prosperity.

Saturday, April 7: 3:20 – 4.40 pm

Youth Unemployment: Youth unemployment is one of Africa’s greatest challenges. Unemployment among young people aged 15–24 years old in sub-Saharan Africa has hovered between 12% and 14% since the 2008 global financial crisis. The data does not include youth in vulnerable employment and underemployed in informal sectors, who make up at least 70% of the workforce. Although these statistics may seem daunting, African policymakers, entrepreneurs, and private businesses have been working to mitigate unemployment among African youth in their respective countries by tapping into innovation. This panel will focus on the complexities of unemployment, expand on the roles of actors on the ground who are working to solve this problem, and give exposure to budding programs and innovations that have been successful in alleviating unemployment throughout the continent.

Panelists:

Annie Duflo - Executive Director of Innovations for Poverty Action (IPA)

Mpho Sekwele - Co-Founder, Bantu Hikers

Samantha Taylor - President, Reputation Dynamics

Special Event Feature: Elephant Art Shop:  Original watercolor paintings, cards and prints for sale with proceeds to benefit the endangered African elephant species.
