Welcome to our first Diaspora Community Calendar, highlighting our activities and triumphs from America to Africa.
Thanks to the Internet, our worlds are not as far apart as they used to be.
This calendar is designed to provide a space for us to share our information, endeavors, and accomplishments.
Although we may not be able to get to some of the events physically, let's take advantage of the opportunity to transfer knowledge and information.
To submit your events to the Diaspora Community Calendar, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. From America to Africa, let's connect!
Peace, Sis. Charlene
