Pan Afrikans in  the Diaspora share the quest for unity of Afrikan people and the unity of Afrika.  We want to see all Afrikan people play a part in the building of unity, as we reclaim our identity and work towards the future of Afrika, and for justice wherever we find people of Afrikan descent, as we lock arms, minds and skills in solidarity at this important junction in our mutual history and reality.

Advent of the AU & OAU

The advent of the African Union (AU) on September, 9, 1999 was an event of great importance and magnitude towards the development and expansion of institutional growth and unity for the African continent. Its goal was and still is focused on facilitating and accelerating the process of integration on the continent, and with Afrikans of the Diaspora, so that Afrikans wherever we may be can play our rightful role in the world’s global economy.

The AU’s goal is to also address the many multifaceted social, economic and political problems that exist and to address the negative aspects of globalization that effect ALL Afrikan people on the continent and in the diaspora.

The OAU’s major objective was to rid the Afrikan continent of its remaining vestiges of colonization and apartheid. The AU’s goal is to promote unity and solidarity among African States and to coordinate cooperation and development.
