THE VOICE OF THE NEW GENERATION
We exist specifically for Africans to: Question and discuss our engagement – as a people and as a continent – with the rest of the
world, especially the Western world, in ways cultural, economic, political, social,
psychological or historical.
Debate issues of our identity in the globalized world, particularly with respect to our historical and current experiences with the West and East, but also to critically examine how global culture influences how we see ourselves.
Discuss what makes us tick and how we engage with one another as Africans from different cultures at home and in the diaspora. Promote, discuss and remind ourselves of the value of African solutions, practices, customs,
lifestyles and approaches to creativity, work and life. Offer our points of view on local, continental and global current events, and critically analyze
the way we, and our continent, are portrayed in the international media. Jointly appraise and appreciate our most remarkable contributions to global culture, examine
them in the context of local lifestyles and culture, or global culture, and bring these examples into the lives of pop culture fans all over the world (the hottest music and the most notable fashion, film, books, photography and art).
