4. BRIDGING THE GAP BETWEEN AFRICANS & THE DIASPORA
Saturday, March 10, 2018, 1:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.
Members of the African Diaspora are often seen as brothers and sisters, from different mothers and misters. However, due to stereotypical, cultural, and/or racial misconceptions, we at times tend to be at odds with one another. The time to finally bridge that gap is now. The Nigerian American Professionals Association invites you to Gorée Cuisine to dine and discuss ways to collectively progress the African Diaspora. Guests are encouraged to participate in sessions and discussions aimed at providing practical solutions to unify our Black community. Learn more HERE.
