Diallo Sumbry, Kweku Essien, Omolola Adele-Oso, and Wendi Cherry talk with Cheraé Robinson on what repatriation means for Diasporans and what the roadmap looks like in our post Covid-19 world.
As the West gets it increasingly wrong on COVID-19, the bell tolls even louder on moving back to the continent. Whether you’re a late gen immigrant who’s ready to go back to the land of your parents or a first wave diasporan who’s ready to return to your ancestors, this conversation brings you perspective from people who’ve done it.
Presented by Tastemakers Africa, The Thread | Conversations Beyond The Return is a monthly-ish series of conversations unpacking the potential for Pan-Africanism in a post-"Year of Return" moment for the culture. Since its inception as an in-person event in Washington, DC The Thread has gone virtual reaching nearly 7,000 people from 50+ countries. On July 5th, 2020, The Thread Volume V Vol. 5 took us inside, kicking off conversations of healing within our community and then turning to solutions that question the system in the west that we've adopted as truth.
