The National Action Cultural Committee (NACC), on the occasion of the 48th anniversary of African Liberation Day, will host the 29th Annual African Liberation Day Dinner on tomorrow, at La Joya Complex, EMR, St Joseph, from 7.30 pm. The commemoration of African Liberation Day has assumed heightened importance to the Caribbean region since this year has been designated as the International Year for People of African Descent, by the United Nations.
African Liberation Day (May 25, 1963) was the day on which the newly independent states on the African continent came together and established the Organisation of African Unity (OAU). Although, the OAU was changed in 2002 to the African Union (AU), May 25 is still retained as African Liberation Day throughout the world. The feature speakers for this year's dinner are top African energy expert and businessman Prince Sotubo Billy Harry; and, leading African communications entrepreneur, Sir Godfey Ohuabunwa.
It is noteworthy that both speakers are into areas which are necessary for the African to be involved in, given their importance and relevance in the 21st century and thus be able to make a fundamental contribution to world civilisation.
• Tickets for the dinner are available at NACC offices, 40 Duke Street, Port-of-Spain, or 7 Frederick Street, Marabella. Interested people may call 623-5470.
