This five-week Sankofic seminar will cover some of the major contributions of historic events and personalities from the Caribbean to the ongoing struggle for African freedom.
We will discover:

- The various uprisings and independent communities that arose on these islands during the period of enslavement
- The connections across space and time that were made as a result of the world travels of freedom fighters from the Caribbean
- The strategies and tactics used by individuals and organisations developed in the region for the achievement of Pan-Africanism
This free seminar will be held via Zoom.
