On March 30, 2013 The African Unity of Harlem, Inc., a social service and humanitarian organization, will hold a free and public multi-media Gathering in Harlem, NY to heighten awareness of the mortal conflicts, crises and tensions in Africa that impact the African Diaspora, the future of the children everywhere and humanity.

“To be able to hold a Gathering in Harlem, during these critical times in our lives, on the month and day in which the Fifteenth Amendment (which outlawed the denial of African Americans to vote) was ratified 143 years ago and getting the National Black Theatre, truly demonstrates Divine participation in our efforts to heighten awareness about the many conflicts and crises being imposed on Africa that impact us all in the Diaspora.”  AUH Founder and President, Ato Kassayi Hailu

Harlem, New YorkOn Saturday, March 30, 2013 from 2:00 PM to 7:00 PM, the Afrikan Unity of Harlem, Inc. will hold a free and public Gathering at the renowned Dr. Barbara Ann Teer’s National Black Theatre located at 2031 Fifth Avenue, Harlem, New York 10035 at 125th Street, just blocks from the world-famous Apollo Theatre.  The purpose of the Gathering is to heighten awareness and present the truth, which mainstream media and governments fail to do, concerning the mortal conflicts, crises and tensions in Africa and their affects on Africa’s descendants, their children and the future of humanity.  Critical Conversation in Community, Dialogue-Discussion in the Diaspora and the Creation of (the first) Afrikan Unity of Harlem International Community Center headline the Gathering’s agenda.

Informal conversation and dialogue-discussion with the “Community Family,” and brothers and sisters with “boots on the ground” presence along with and panelists and speakers consisting of historians, educators and scholars with first-hand information, knowledge and cogent perspective on current events in their homeland of either Mali, Cote d’Ivoire, The Congo, The Sudan, Ethiopia, Eritrea, Nigeria and Somalia, will undoubtedly provoke and propel strategic thought, a main goal of the Gathering.  Urgent current events in Haiti, Jamaica, other areas of the Caribbean and the Northern Hemisphere will also be critically examined, analyzed and discussed via panel discussion and audience interaction.  Q&A sessions and multi-media–film, the internet-Worldwide Web-SKYPE, CDs, DVDs, and videos—will serve to corroborate and substantiate the discussions, conversations and reporting as to complement the event.  Several intermissions will allow time for all to “meet and greet,” and enjoy refreshments and cultural music.

The goal of those who seek to conquer the minds and spirits of the natives and descendents of Africa–the richest continent on earth–with the ultimatum of creating a state of dependency, subservience, self-hatred and desperation continues to find willing and consenting subjects. Such pathology begs critical examination and will serve to lead AUH’s President Ato Hailu to begin discussion on the vital need for an International Community Center–a mighty and costly undertaking.  Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King once said, “Silence is betrayal,” and Minister Ajaye, AUH’s Vice President and son of Honorable Queen Mother Moore, will discuss how the practice of The Seven Guiding Principle of Nguzo-Saba  can serve to “break the silence,” respect our Ancestors, ancestral values, protect our existence and direct our children’s future.  Minister Ajaye will also speak on his latest book which provocatively examines “identity.”
