Community African Diaspora Network
In addition to the academic component of our Consortium, we have already established relationships with community organizations such as Diaspora Vibe, an Art gallery focusing on show casing the art of the African Diaspora; the Old Dillard Museum, the African World Artists Collective (AWAC), Fanhm Ayisen nan Myami (Haitian Women of Miami); Ife Ile for their Baila USA Summer Initiative; Harambee, Inc. Some of these will also provide internship relationships, and in other cases we have collaborated with them to offer programs of relevance to the African Diaspora. Specifically the following collaborations have been realized:
- Marcus Garvey Lecture with Don Rico and Associates (Horace Campbell, Syracuse University ).
- AWAC, an organization of local artists
- Diaspora Vibe Gallery, the presentation of Deb Willis, Photographer
- Fanm Ayisyen Nan Miyami for their annual Haitian Women’s Conference
- Ife Ile – Baila USA , summer African Diaspora Dance program (lecture, workshop, and performance)
- African American Research Library Fort Lauderdale ( symposia via International Programs, Broward Libraries)
- Old Dillard Museum (art exhibitions, book launches and other cultural programs).
- Nucleo Cultural Afro-Brasileiro (Salvador-Bahia) (film)
