On June 30, 2012, the 4th Annual Pan African Youth Summit kicked off at Pleasant Hope Baptist Church. The event was organized by the Dubois Collective and its continental African partner, the Ligue des Panafricanistes Révolutionnaires (League of Revolutionary Pan-Africanists.)
The inaugural summit was organized in Washington, D.C, in 2009. The subsequent two years, it was held in Dakar, Senegal. This year the summit set down roots in Baltimore. The theme was “Reviving Pan-Africanism and the Black Radical Tradition”.
The objective of the summit was to bring together politicized youth in the Pan-African world to engage in critical discussion about the issues we are facing and to elaborate strategies and community projects to advance our struggle for self-determination.” SOURCE
Featured panelists this year included Eugene Puryear from the A.N.S.W.E.R. coalition and Party for Socialism and Liberation’s Presidential Candidate, Peta Lindsay.
