We are really excited to introduce the speakers for the anniversary conference. They all share a connection to the Africa Society, either as past committee members or because of previous engagements, and a passion for Pan Africanism. The keynote speaker, Prof. Kole Omotoso, will deliver the lecture 'Decline and Rise of Pan Africanism in the 21st Century'. Discover more about all the speakers below.
