“Let’s Liberate Africa! May 25 is important” was a passionate statement from Kojo Yankah to the world, when he was asked about the AU Day.
The African Union Day, also referred to as the African Unity Day, African Liberation Day, AU Day, or Africa Day is celebrated on the 25th May of every year.
The day is observed in many African countries to commemorate the foundation of the Organization of African Unity in 1963.
The theme for this year is
2022: The year of nutrition – Strengthening Resilience in Nutrition and Food Security on the African Continent: Strengthening Agro-Food Systems, Health and Social Protection Systems for the Acceleration of Human, Social and Economic Capital DevelopmentAfrican Union
And on special occasions like this, prominent Africans who have made tremendous contributions towards the development and independence of Africa, share their words of influence with the world.
One of such heroes is Kojo Yankah, the founder of the Pan African Heritage Museum
Here’s the founder’s statement:
“Let’s Liberate Africa! May 25 is important!
What would be more inspiring than an occasion when Africans and people of African descent joined hands to educate, heal and inspire each other?
What joy it would be if we abandoned all our petty squabbles over ethnicity, tribalism, border disputes, religious differences and political differences and embraced each other as a people with one beautiful heritage?
The mission of the Pan African Heritage Museum is to support African cultural liberation to include the diaspora as the sixth region and bring pride and self-confidence to everyone irrespective of age, location or social standing!
On this Africa Liberation Day, we salute all our ancestors – cultural, political, social, academic – who sacrificed all they had to fight domination of any kind.”
