“No matter what language we speak, No matter where we are born, No matter what religious we practice, We are ONE AFRIKAN PEOPLES home and abroad!!!”

Greetings Your Excellencies, Clergy, Elders, Scholars, Fathers, Mothers, Brothers and Sisters of the African Diaspora. It is with joy to report to you this day of the advancements made by your African Diaspora Brothers and Sister as we embraced the missions set by the African Union, to have the African descendants who are living outside of Africa, to organize towards the United Union States of Africa. We hope that you will find this report refreshing for we as African Diasporas have received our torch passed on to us by our ancestors of African Unity, Pan Africaism, and African Nationalism and we are together moving forward. We have to give thanks and praises to God, whose name and attributes are just as diverse as the names, cultures, and tradition of us as African blood descended people and to our ancestors, martyrs, our saints, who all over the world, struggled to lay this foundation we have today to continue in the spirit of freedom, the spirit of Pan Africanism, and the spirit to return and maintain our integrity as a stolen and lost people of the African Continent.

We would like to thank the Sixth Region Diaspora Caucus( SDRC) for their hard work and strength. We have had the pleasure to see them in action in New York as they laid down the structures to the definition of the African in the Diaspora and held various community gatherings to gain the awareness of the African Union’s invitation to invite the African Diaspora to join them in their efforts to create the United States of Africa and to help build the African Union. We would also like to thank the Charleston South Carolina community for their generous hospitality in hosting such a noted and praise worthy international conference like PADU, and we are confident that they will go on to speared the good news of total African cohesiveness.

As we sojourn from New York to South Carolina, the twenty hour bus ride on Greyhound gave us much needed time to rest back from the fast busy day to day life of New York City. Being that we respect all African Black people regardless of language, religion, or place of birth it was easy to spark up conversations with those going along to the South. There is much respect and hospitality African Blacks in the south hold. Very personal and intimate.

As told by one of the city’s Elders, originally South Carolina stretched far south as Florida and as far west as California. In Charleston around 1670 the town was known for its lumber and in 1678, exploration ships arriving from Madagascar landed on its coast. The land was once dense in marshlands and was seen to be a good business place to harvest in rice production. Seeing rice cultivated in the west coasts of Africa, the exploiters began shipping African people to the western lands to cultivate and harvest rice. From the skills and techniques African peoples used, the land would go on to produce enough to have a wealthy population. We, as Africans, were sought after for our knowledge, for cultivation skills and it was our skills that would invent long grain rice.  As the rice production grow more and more Africans were brought in to the Diaspora allowing the Gala Gushy culture to flourish.  After a tsunami erupted in the land, thousands of people were swept away along with the rice fields.  As of today, Charleston consist of several Islands all bond together through a serious of bridges.

The City of Charleston is home to the oldest African Diaspora Church, the proclaimed African Methodist Episcopal Church. The AME Church. It was originally founded in Philadelphia in 1891 when three African worshipers went to pray in front of the altar of the church they attended. During those days Africans could only pray in the upper balcony so one day these worshipers after seeing the entrance door to the church locked, entered through the front door. They stopped to pray in front of the alter to worship before going to the upper balcony, immediately they where manhandled and ordered to go to the back of the church. The three African men used this denial for them to worship their God as strength to leave that church to establish their own! The famous AME Church.

The Pan African Diaspora Union first international conference was much success. Please view videos of our trip on our YouTube channel and visit our blog for pictures and more details. Please read the official press release concerning the outcome of the conference and we look forward in meeting with you to give presentation of the Center of African Unity of Harlem.
