The Africa Policy Forum

8th October 2010

From the 24th - 28th September 2010 Andrew Kluckow of Meckow International Limited attended the “Africa Policy Forum” presented by the Leon H. Sullivan Foundation.

The aim of the forum was to bring together the African Diaspora, providing a place for the exchange of ideas intended to help build understanding and mutuality of purpose among the people of the Diaspora. Their wish is to inform the world with a strong and positive vision of Africa.

A procession was held through Atlanta to mark the opening ceremony of The Bank of America Football Classic which took place on the 25th September 2010. This event was attended by a number of high level dignitaries from the forum.

On the evening of Sunday 26th September the “Africa Is In Me”, African Ancestry Reveal Dinner was held. At this event a number of leading delegates of the forum received the results of their DNA analysis (taken previously). This identified their Ancestral home Country in Africa. Among those who took part were Martin Luther King III and Dr. Julius Garvey (son of Marcus Garvey).

The forum got into full swing on the morning of Monday 27th September and a number of panel discussions were held over the next two days covering various subjects pertaining to the Continent.
