MINI DISCUSSION: Trans-Atlantic Slavery and the Impact on Modern American and African Societies

🌍 Join us for an enlightening Mini Discussion on April 3rd, 2024, as we delve into the enduring impact of Trans-Atlantic Slavery on modern America-Africa societies! 📚 Throughout history, the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade has left an indelible mark on both continents, shaping the socio-political, cultural, and economic landscapes we see today. From the forced migration of millions of Africans to the Americas to the establishment of plantation economies, the repercussions of this dark period echo through generations. Even though slavery is no longer exists, its consequences are still felt in in systemic inequalities, racial tensions, and cultural exchanges, influencing everything from language and cuisine to social structures and political ideologies.

This session offers a unique opportunity to explore the complexities of this historical phenomenon and its implications for contemporary societies. We’ll examine how narratives of slavery are constructed and contested, and how they affect our views on identity, power, and justice. Through dialogue and reflection, we aim to deepen our understanding of the interconnectedness of past and present, and to foster meaningful conversations about how we can collectively address the legacies of slavery in our shared world.
