Attend a screening of the documentary Afrodiaspora Global presented in collaboration with Table ronde du Mois de l’histoire des Noirs. The screening will be followed by a conversation with filmmaker and anthropologist Sheila S Walker.

The United Nations has declared 2015–2024 the International Decade for People of African Descent, whose first theme is recognizing the contributions of the African continent and people of African descent to the development, diversity and richness of world civilizations and cultures.  

Sheila S Walker’s Afrodiaspora Global project aims to contribute to this “recognition” by serving as a platform for her field research, cultural and intellectual experiences, and insight into the global African diaspora and its links to its ancestral roots.   

The event is made possible thanks to financial support from the U.S. Embassy and Consulate in Canada.
